The Last Thing on My Mind
Written by Tom Paxton



Chords


Song

1.

It's a lesson too late for the learnin',
Made of sand, made of sand,
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin',
In your hand, in your hand.

chorus:

Are you goin' away with no word of farewell?
Will there be not a trace left behind?
Well I could have loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind,
You know that was the last thing on my mind.

2.

As we walk, all my thoughts are a-tumblin',
Round and round, round and round,
Underneath our feet the subways rumblin',
Underground, underground.

3.

You've got reasons a-plenty for goin',
This I know, this I know,
For the weeds have been steadily growin',
Please don't go, please don't go.

4.

As I lie in my bed in the mornin',
Without you, without you,
Each song in my breast dies a-bornin',
Without you, without you.
