Don't Take Chances

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

A New Riders song from 1969 that I assume is a John Dawson original. It has never been released on a New Riders album.

I never wanted you to want me
And I never wanted you to follow
If you do, you take a chance, I might not even know where I am going
I might leave you and the wind would be the only one to say where I'd be going

Don't take any chances
If you don't want to
Don't kiss any strangers
If you haven't got the mind to

Well I pray the sun will rise tomorrow morning
On faces where the eyes have never seen the dawning
Oh don't mistake the light that leaves the void to fill the hollow of my loving
I need your love to make me feel the light that is the reason for belonging

No, but don't take any chances
If you don't want to
Don't kiss any strangers
If you haven't got the mind to
