Linda Ronstadt – All I Left Behind lyrics

Written by Emmylou Harris and Kate & Anna Mcgarrigle
© Almo Music Corp/ Poodlebone Music/
Garden Court Music (Ascap)

All I left behind should come as no surprise
To me since I fell through the black hole of your eyes
Only little things inconsequential I could say
Of all I left behind with you along the lost highway

Silver earrings in Wichita
Beaded moccasions in Tonopah
But I had you so
I just let them go

The flannel shirt I wore to keep me from the cold
When we drove from Boston all the way to Buffalo
The leather boots I bought so many miles ago
I took them off to follow you into the Ohio

Never did my armor feel so thin
Silk was all I had between me and your skin
Like Waterloo
I lost that too

And the golden bracelet with my father's name inscribed
On the back by the one who loved him all her life
The way I too
Could have loved you

The Spanish shawl I put across the broken shade
Of the lamp that lit the room
That last night near Coeur d'Alene
Only little things inconsequential I could say
Of all I left behind with you along the lost highway
Of all I left behind
