Pamela Brown
by Tom T. Hall
Copyright 1971 Hallnote Music/BMI
recorded by Leo Kottke on:

1978 "Leo Kottke The Best" (Capitol)
1987 "The Best of Leo Kottke" (Capitol)
I'm the guy that didn't marry "pretty" Pamela Brown
Educated, well-intentioned good girl in our town
I wonder where I'd be today if she had loved me too
Probably be driving kids to school
I guess I owe it all to Pamela Brown
All of my good times - all my roamin' around
One of these days I might be in your town
And I guess I owe it all to Pamela Brown
Seen the lights of cities and been inside their doors
Sailed to foreign countries and walked upon their shores
I guess the guy she married was the best part of my luck
She dug him cause he drove a pick-up truck
Chorus:
I don't have to tell you just how beautiful she was
Everything it take to get a guy like me in love
Lord I hope she's happy cause she sure deserves to be
Especially for what she did for me
Chorus
