Trying to Stop Your Leaving
Got a guitar Got a guitar on my back And I'm standin' on this lonesome railroad track Train's a-comin' It'll be here 'fore too long But I don't think I can stop it with a song Girl, that's the kind of way I'm feelin' Tryin' to stop your leavin' Got a pebble Got a pebble in my hand And I toss it out into the middle of the Rio Grande But the river keeps runnin' Don't even know that I'm around I could throw a million more and not slow it down Girl, that's kind of the way I'm feelin' Tryin' to stop your leavin' There's nothin' that I wouldn't try If I thought it would change your mind But you don't love me No, you don't love me anymore And I know as soon as you walk out that door Train's a comin', river's runnin' Train's a comin', river's runnin' Pain's a comin', tears are runnin' Yeah, that's kind of the way I'm feelin' Knowin' I couldn't stop your leavin'
