SHE EVEN WOKE ME UP TO SAY GOODBYE
(Mickey Newbury - Doug Gilmore)
« © '69 Acuff-Rose Music »

Morning's come and Lord my mind is aching
The sunshine's standing quietly at my door
Just like the dawn my heart is silently breaking
With my tears it goes tumbling to the floor
Once again the whole town will be talking
It's ain't the first time that I've seen the pity there in their eyes
Oh they could never understand it's her sorrow it's not a man
And no matter what they say we know she tried
Baby has packed her soft things and and she's left me
But I know she didn't mean to make me cry
It's not her heart Lord it's her mind she didn't mean to be unkind
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye
It's not her heart Lord but it's her mind...
