The Last Thing on My Mind

The following is my cover of an old favorite by Tom Paxton. This was recorded in collaboration with Lewin Barringer of That’s Lewin on mandolin and bass and some of the backup vocals among other things. Hope you like it.

The Last Thing on My Mind

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


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

You 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


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


Tom Paxton
