Mama, You Been on My Mind (Live at Harvard Square Theatre, Cambridge, MA – November 197…


Maybe it’s the color of
the sun cut flat An’ coverin’ the
crossroads I’m standing at Or maybe it’s the weather
or something like that But mama, you are
just on my mind. I don’t mean trouble, please
don’t put me down or get upset I am not pleadin’ or
sayin’, I can’t forget you I do not walk the floor
bowed down an’ bent, but yet Mama, you are just on my mind. Even though my mind is hazy an’
my thoughts they might be narrow Where you been don’t bother me
nor bring me down in sorrow It don’t even matter to me
where you’re wakin’ up tomorrow Mama, you’re just on my mind When you wake up in the mornin’,
baby, look inside your mirror You know I won’t be
next to you, you know I won’t be near I’d just be curious to know
if you can see yourself as clear As someone who has had
you on his mind Maybe it’s the color of
the sun cut flat An’ coverin’ the
crossroads I’m standing at Or maybe it’s the weather
or something like that But mama, you are
just on my mind Mama, you are just on my mind
