Barry McGuire – You Were On My Mind lyrics

When I woke up this morning
And you were on my mind.
You were on my mind

I got troubles, woe-woe
I got worries, woe-woe
I got wounds to bind.

So I went to the corner
Just to ease my pain
I said, just to ease my pain.

I got troubles, woe-woe
I got worries, woe-woe
I came home again.

When I woke up this morning
And you were on my mind.
And you were on my mind.

I got troubles, woe-woe
I got worries, woe-woe
I got wounds to bind.

But I gotta feelin' yeah
Down in my shoes
I said, way down in my shoes.

I got a rainbow, woe-woe
I gotta move on, woe-woe
I gotta walk away my blues.

When I woke up this morning
And you were on my mind
I said, you were on my mind.

Well I got troubles, woe-woe
I got worries, woe-woe
I got wounds to bind.

    This was written during the early years of vietnam. We came home often without the love of the women and people we left, but the memories went on. Deep scars from the war, and life as we knew it as young men. Death. Heartbreak, only to come home to little or nothing. Going to the corner bar, church, aa meeting- anything to keep moving on- looking for the rainbow and walking on.
