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 http://garagebandandbeyond.com. 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

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

(Chorus)
