I never paid much mind to my mind

Followed my heart to ruin every time

But its always wrecked me in a wonderful land

I never paid much mind to my mind

I never paid much mind to my mind

 

Do call me a fool, if you feel you have to

I can’t really dispute your claim

I never paid much mind to my mind

The feral hog of my heart proudly reigned

 

Rooting around for love was what I was thinking of

Had very little to do with a brain

Had very little to do with a brain

 

Looking out for love, I found one day a so very fine

Sweet and tender truffle name of Linda Lou, Bobbi Sue, Emma Lou

Just what was her name?

 

Found her in a field of a most ireet farming man

And all the hounds they whined it was a crime

But I was following the trail of my heart

Just like every other time

 

And I never paid much mind to my mind

I never paid much mind to my mind

 

My simple heart tells me that I see an angel

In the oh so devilish design of a girl

I sense that I have loved since before time began

In a way I love her still

 

So I’ll say it just one more time

Cuz you know that its just that way

You know I never paid much mind to my mind

Never cared to much anyway

 

Music Bridge

 

I know I don’t sing like no angel

But not many care to sound like me

Cuz in order to be one with the blues brother

You must have paid dues as a human being

The bind man that receives his sight at last

Sees so much more than the always sighted see

 

Is this why I never paid much mind to my mind

Do I suspect it all a dream?

 

To my mind

To my mind

To my mind

 

To my mind

To my mind

To my mind

 

So far it seems to be not much more than this

A few pleasures snatched from a sea of dissipating bliss

Still if fate allows only this lonesome walk through

The dissipating mists of time

I still my never pay much mind to my mind

 

To my mind

To my mind

To my mind
