By townes van zandt

Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
And anyway I'll be home soon
For once is someone waitin' there
And if you don't mind
I just think on her instead


Your face, she's a picture, babe
Pictures ain't what I crave
I don't feel this way most generally
I just pit a thousand miles 'tween me
And where my thoughts do lie
And I thank you kindly baby to kindly let me be


Your car, she's smooth and fast
Babe, your bourbon's fine
But I ain't feelin free and clear today
Texas loving laying on my mind
I couldn't do you right babe spinnin' round this way


Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
And anyway I'll be home soon
For once is someone waitin' there
And if you don't mind
I just think on her instead
