Mama, You Been On My Mind
Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat
An' coverin' the crossroads I'm standing at
Maybe it's the weather or something like that
But mama (daddy), you been on my mind

I don't mean trouble, please don't put me down, don't get upset
I am not pleading, or sayin' I can't forget you
I do not walk the floor bowed down and bent
But yet, mama (daddy), you're just on my mind

Even though my mind is hazy
An' my thoughts they might be narrow
Where you been don't bother me
Nor bring me down in sorrow
It don't even matter where you're wakin' up tomorrow
But mama (daddy), you're just on my mind

I, don't mean trouble, please don't put me down, Ah

I am not asking you to say words like yes or no
Please understand me, I'm not calling for you to go
I'm just breathing to myself
Pretendin' not that I don't know
That mama (daddy), you been on my mind

When you wake up in the mornin'
Baby, look inside your mirror
And you know I won't be next to you
You know I won't be near
I'd just be curious to know
If you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on his mind
