The Last Thing on My Mind

This song is by Stark Sands, features Punch Brothers and appears on the soundtrack Inside Llewyn Davis (2013).

This song is a cover of "The Last Thing On My Mind" by Tom Paxton.
It's a lesson too late for the learnin'
Made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin'
In your hand, in your hand

Are you going away with no word of farewell?
Will there be not a trace left behind?
Well, I could have loved you better
I didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

You've got reasons a-plenty for goin'
This I know, this I know
For the weeds have been steadily growin'
Please don't go, please don't go

Are you going away with no word of farewell?
Will there be not a trace left behind?
Well, I could have loved you better
I didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

As I lie in my bed in the mornin'
Without you, without you
Each song in my breast dies a bornin'
Without you, without you

Are you going away with no word of farewell?
Will there be not a trace left behind?
Well, I could have loved you better
I didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind
And then it was the last thing on my mind
