Got Leavin' On Her Mind

Lyrics: Jack Clement
Music: Jack Clement

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the early 1970s, but not recorded for one of their albums.

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
