I can't be at your beck and call
Your love so slow and heavy
It's like a southern drawl
It don't seem worth your time
If the two of us ain't one of a kind

I won't be another turn
To gather up and use what you learn

And of course he's always on your mind
You should hold him dear
Leave his love behind
'Cause you can't call it moving on
If all I do is make you feel so wrong

I won't be another turn
To gather up and use what you learn

Of all the ways a man might live
To love and to laugh, to do and to give
I know that it could take some time
Go be with him, but then be mine

    Lyric CorrectionI can't be at your beck and call
    With a love so slow and heavy...

    ...to gather up and use what you learned...

    ...but leave his love behind...

    ...use what you learned

    Of all the ways a man might live
    To love and to laugh, to do and to give...

    My OpinionI think this is one of the more perfect folkie heart break songs ever written. But I like the solo acoustic performances better than the studio recording. He's really talented.
