"Trying To Stop You Leaving" as written by Brett Beavers, Dierks Bentley and Jim Beavers....
Got a guitar
Got a guitar on my back
And I'm standin' on this lonesome railroad track
Train's a-comin'
It'll be here 'fore too long
But I don't think I can stop it with a song
Girl, that's the kind of way I'm feelin'
Tryin' to stop your leavin'

Got a pebble
Got a pebble in my hand
And I toss it out into the middle of the Rio Grande
But the river keeps runnin'
Don't even know that I'm around
I could throw a million more and not slow it down
Girl, that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Tryin' to stop your leavin'

There's nothin' that I wouldn't try
If I thought it would change your mind

But you don't love me
No, you don't love me anymore
And I know as soon as you walk out that door
Train's a comin', river's runnin'
Train's a comin', river's runnin'
Pain's a comin', tears are runnin'
Yeah, that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Knowin' I couldn't stop your leavin'

    General CommentWhat a good song.

    Again, another one about a relationship, see a pattern? His girlfriend left him and he cant do anything about it. Not with a song, not with a pebble in the rio grande. He just cant seem to change her mine. In the midst of trying to stop her leaving, he kind of forgets his feelings. But as soon as she's gone, it floods him.
