Mama, You've Been On My Mind

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Sung by Brian Lesh and Emily Sutherland with Phil Lesh & Friends.

Perhaps itís the color of the sun cut flat
And covering the crossroads Iím standing at
Or maybe itís the weather or something like that
But mama, you been on my mind

I donít mean trouble, please donít put me down or get upset
I am not pleadiní or sayiní, I canít forget
I do not walk the floor bowed down aní bent, but yet
Mama, you been on my mind

Even though my mind is hazy aní my thoughts they might be narrow
Where you been donít bother me nor bring me down in sorrow
It donít even matter to me where youíre wakiní up tomorrow
But mama, youíre just on my mind

I am not askiní you to say words like yes or no
Please understand me, I got no place for you tí go
Iím just breathiní to myself, pretendiní not that I donít know
Mama, you been on my mind

When you wake up in the morniní, baby, look inside your mirror
You know I wonít be next to you, you know I wonít be near
Iíd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on his mind
