Theres a beaten old path across the property line
Following only the root of the pine
It was late last night
I was down on my knees
Scatter the dirt on the dying leaves

You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind

Blood on his shirt was staining away
Like the stripes on the flag that they lowered that day
Then later that night like some old country band
We sang glory halleluiah as they folded his hands

You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind

When we followed the web the invisible web (?)
And remember the words to a prayer that was said
And we sat in our booths and turned off the lights
And pretended we didn’t know what we would find

You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
we went to the well but the well had run dry
so we rolled cigarettes and we stared at the sky
then that night by the dam where the cool water runs
i swear i went to that place where your songs come from

You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
You were on my mind
