Last Thing on My Mind

Cat. #1054 (MFH #751) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on March 11, 1970

T'is th last thing to late for th learning
Made of sand, made of sand
Ever wink of th eye, my soul is turning
In your hand, in your hand

Are you goin' away with no words of farewell
Will there be, not a trace left behind
I should've loved you better
But I didn't mean t' be unkind
Tho' that was th last thing on my mind

You have reasons of plenty for leavin'
This I know, this I know
An' th weeks are steadily growin'
Please don't go please don't go

As I lay in my bed in th mornin'
Without you, without you
Ever song in my heart is a pinein'
Without you, without you
