"Greensboro Woman" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
and anyway I'll be home soon
for once is someone waitin' there
and if you don't mind
I just think on her instead

Your face, she's a picture, babe
pictures ain't what I crave
I don't feel this way most generally
I just pit a thousand miles 'tween me
and where my thoughts do lie
and I thank you kindly baby to kindly let me be

Your car, she's smooth and fast
babe, your bourbon's fine
but I ain't feelin free and clear today
Texas loving laying on my mind
I couldn't do you right babe spinnin' round this way

Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
and anyway I'll be home soon
for once is someone waitin' there
and if you don't mind
I just think on her instead

    General CommentBasically, the guy is being lured by a girl he would normally be interested in, but he is now in a relationship with someone he cares about and just wants to be left alone and not tempted to cheat.
