Got Leavin' On Her Mind

Lyrics: Jack Clement
Music: Jack Clement

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the early 1970s.

Now she don't hold and kiss me
Like she did one time
I think my sweet baby's
Got leavin' on her mind

The longer I know her the more I can tell
My darling's not happy with me
The longer I know that I know her too well
The less love in her eyes I see

[chorus]

The closer I hold her the farther apart
My darling is growing from me
The danger of my darling breaking my heart
Is fast moving in on me

[chorus]

The deeper I love her the farther away
My darling slips out of my hands
The longer the future the longer I'll stay
Out of my darling's plans

[chorus]
Oh yes, I think my sweet baby's
Got leavin' on her mind
