​Not What I Had In Mind

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Sings More New Favorites (1964) and on the album The Great George Jones (1965).

Just thought I'd have a little fun and paint the town
I always said someday I'll walk the line
But now she's gone and I'm the bluest guy around
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I thought that I could play the field and be a clown
I broke the heart that loved me many times
Yes, I know that I'm the biggest fool in town
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I didn't mean for things to get so out of hand
I always meant to make it up in time
But now she's gone, she hates the very sight of me
And that's not exactly what I had in mind

I told myself, "Go play around you're young and free"
Too late I found that I was oh so blind
I lost a love I never did deserve at all
But that's not exactly what I had in mind
No, that's not exactly what I had in mind
