The Last Thing On My Mind --- Tom Paxton

 

Itís a [G]lesson too [C]late for the [G]learniní
[C]Made of [G]sand, [D]made of [G]sand.
In the [G]wink of an [C]eye my soul is [G]turniní
[C]In your [G]hand, [D]in your [G]hand.

            Are you [D]going away with no [C]word of fare-[G]well?
            Will there [C]be not a [G]trace left be-[D]hind?
            Well, I [G]could have loved you [C]better, didnít [G]mean to be unkind.
            You know that was the [D]last thing on my [G]mind. 

Youíve got [G]reasons a-[C]plenty for [G]goiní
[C]This I [G]know, [D]this I [G]know.
For the [G]weeds have been [C]steadily [G]growiní
[C]Please donít [G]go, [D]please donít [G]go.

            Are you [D]going away with no [C]word of fare-[G]well?
            Will there [C]be not a [G]trace left be-[D]hind?
            Well, I [G]could have loved you [C]better, didnít [G]mean to be unkind.
            You know that was the [D]last thing on my [G]mind. 

 As [G]we walk [C]on my thoughts are [G]tumbliní
[C]Round and [G]round, [D]round and [G]round.
Under-[G]neath our [C]feet the subwayís [G]rumbliní
[C]Under-[G]ground, [D]under-[G]ground.

            Are you [D]going away with no [C]word of fare-[G]well?
            Will there [C]be not a [G]trace left be-[D]hind?
            Well, I [G]could have loved you [C]better, didnít [G]mean to be unkind.
            You know that was the [D]last thing on my [G]mind. 

As I [G]lie in my [C]bed in the [G]morniní
[C]Without [G]you, [D]without [G]you.
Every [G]song in my [C]breast dies a-[G]borniní
[C]Without [G]you, [D]without [G]you.

            Are you [D]going away with no [C]word of fare-[G]well?
            Will there [C]be not a [G]trace left be-[D]hind?
            Well, I [G]could have loved you [C]better, didnít [G]mean to be unkind.
            You know that was the [D]last thing on my [G]mind.
