She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye

Lyrics: Doug Gilmore, Mickey Newbury
Music: Doug Gilmore, Mickey Newbury

Played at one of the earliest known Garcia/Saunders concerts, on 15 Jan 1972.

Mornings come and Lord my mind is aching
Sunshine standing quietly at my door
Like the dawn, my heart is silently breaking
Like my tears, it goes rolling to the floor

Once again, the whole town will be talking
And Lord, I can see the pity that's in their eyes
They could never understand
It's her sorrow, it's not a man
And no matter what they think, we know she tried

Baby's taken all her soft things and she's left me
And I know she didn't mean to make me cry
It's not her heart, it's her mind
She didn't mean to be unkind Well she even woke me up to say goodbye
Well she's taken all her soft things and she's left me
And I know she didn't mean to make me cry
It's not her heart, it's her mind
She didn't mean to be unkind Well she even woke me up to say goodbye
It's not her heart, Lord, it's her mind
She didn't mean to be unkind why
Why she even woke me up to say goodbye
