"The Last Thing On My Mind" (Tom Paxton song)

Recommended Posts




There’s a lesson too late in the learnin’
Made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul was 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, didn’t mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind


You’ve got reasons aplenty for goin’
This I know, this I know
For the weeds have been steadily growin’
Please don’t go, please don’t go




As I lie here awake in the mornin’
And think of you, think of you
Each song in my breast dies a’bornin’
Without you, without you


The guitar is tuned down a whole step but with a capo on at the 2nd fret so it is essentially in standard tuning.

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with this rendition? It's only gotten one thumbs up on my YT channel and I'm wondering what it is that people don't like about it. Is it the non-traditional arrangement, the guitar, vocal or what? At this point I'm probably going to take it down. I seriously want to know. Thanks.
