Campbell, Glen - The Last Thing On My Mind Lyrics




It's a lesson too late for the learning
Made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin'
In your hand, in your hand
Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

As we walk along my thoughts are tumblin'
Round and round, round and round
Underneath our feet are someplace rumblin'
Underground, underground

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

I've got reasons a plenty for goin'
This I know, this I know
The weeds have been steadily growin'
Please don't go, please don't go

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

Are you going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

Campbell, Glen The Last Thing On My Mind Comments
  1. Dewi. Rowlands

    Just suberb glen campbell legend

  2. Br Alan Parham

    Mom and Dad, I was sometimes an ungrateful son. "I didn't mean to be to be unkind. You know that was the last thing on my mind."  Miss you both so much now that you are together in Heaven.

  3. NippyFan4Life

    Beautiful

  4. Rick Rodrigues

    The world lost a talented man & an amazing guitarist...Glen Campbell sings in Heaven now. RIP.

  5. Pat McAlexander

    beautiful!

  6. Tom Jones

    Ive looked for someone who could sing this song as good as Tom Paxton,,,,, Who else! Glen Campbell!! Was there anything he couldn't sing or do? Glen was absolutely amazing,,,

  7. Norm Hall

    This is a song written by folk great Tom Paxton. I like his version best of all. I am a Glen Campbell fan but I could do without the heavenly choir on this song.

  8. Norm Hall

    This is a Tom Paxton song. Glen sings it in a Psalm style, almost religious. Good version by a giant.

  9. gary gj

    This is truly beautiful. but does no one here remember that it was Tom Paxton who wrote it and it was out in 1964? I have no idea who did it best. It is like so many things. The best one is the one you are doing now. If it is late enough at night that might be me. We have "Man Caves" so others do not have to suffer...OK I got a little off course or coarse if you like. Remember TOM PAXTON wrote it and a whole lotta other good stuff.

    Glen, always managed to "better" any song...I've herd this one from many and they dont "deliver" that? in my opinion for the subject is not something to sing kinda bored or unattached; have to include passion on the voice; be it a woman or a man

  12. Arizz Colla

    Amazing Voice Bless this Song forever...

  13. Squee Dow

    I was expecting this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ntNDt7i9w4

  14. doobeedoo2

    this take somewhat different than other recordings by Glen of this song, I think...not sure tho

  15. Lynn Lobliner

    My intro to this was on a Chad Mitchell Trio album, and Joe or Mike sang it solo. His was a bit less smooth but the same haunting quality. I do like Glen's sad version.

  16. Cindy stuteville

    Beautiful song . You will be missed 😔

  17. Brenda Rawlins

    I defy anyone to listen to today is mine and not have tears stream down your face. This too makes me cry.

  18. Brenda Rawlins

    Today is mine is by far his best though all are divine.

  19. Brenda Rawlins

    god I love this

  20. Babeeboy Maria

    hermosa cancion, me toca me encanta mas y lo extrano mucho

    Rolph Artieda

    la primera ves que la escuche? me dejo estupefacto y .. lo atribuyo al momento que venia viviendo, me patria adoptiva me reclamaba y tenia que irme de la que me vio nacer dejando familia y amigos; no quise ofender a nadie..solo yo se el significado...

  21. Frannie Marie

    tears and more tears when I hear him

  22. Andrew Heller

    Mortant, thanx for this lovely posting; &, ur lovely sentiments on the post caption/comment area; yet, ur rotten English detracts sooooo much when I read it; that it makes me ache so rotten that it hurts real bad.

    Brenda Church

    So Beautiful

  29. Chris Lewis

    Totally different from the upbeat Seekers' version.

  30. Jeff Hash

    Amazing voice as many that have gone on before. Never again will this world enjoy such talent as Glen and many like him. He has a way to bring the real feelings out.

  31. belgianquill

    In the style of Johnny Mathis, I think.

    Brenda Rawlins

    Yes it is too.

  32. Rolph Artieda

    Many versions of this song are out there; but Glen has an incredible way to give words a deeper meaning ... with intention; to say goodbye is not easy and hurts saying and listening to it also; both sides get hurt! so if there´s no emotion connected to the words in the song? we can say nah!! I will find a better version

  33. Ken Margo

    One of the greatest love songs .Came out  50 years ago.

  34. Rebecca Day

    indescribably beautiful..... so glad God blessed us with Glen Campbell........

  35. Lenora Wilson

    This is my favorite song by Glen, he's so good, it was really hard to pick just  one but no one can sing this song as well as him.  A lot of others did record but he's the best!!!

  36. Lenora Wilson

    Love, Love, Love this song by the GREAT Glen Campbell, He is one of the best in music him and ELVIS!!

    Lenora Wilson

    Love this song so-o much by Glen Campbell, I wish I could have been to one of his concerts. 

  37. Mark Richardson

    Oh My - Oh My - Oh My!

    Brenda Rawlins

    I have been to two of his concerts in Australia very early on and I thought I had died and gone to heaven 2 rows from the front and 3 seats from the microphone in Australia.

  38. mwolfenbarger1

    I've always loved this song and Glen Campbell and Neil Diamond have the absolute two best versions on the planet....and this is the better of  the two. I'm glad that I got to see him live before he quit touring.

  39. Lenora Wilson

    I feel so bad that he won't be performing any more, I never was lucky enough to go to one of his concerts!!!

  40. Lenora Wilson

    He is one of the very best ever, I love this song by him It is really hard to say what his greatest songs, he is just so GREAT:

  41. Tina Skree

    Boy this mans voice has always been of angles. His talent is unparalelled .

  42. alaskandww

    I suppose I saw and recorded most of Glen's shows and would play most all his songs over and over. At 77, tears start to flow more easily and the memories wash back into my mind. This one is so good. Thanks for a fine presentation.

  43. Helen Phillips

    One of the most beautiful voices on earth. Brings back lots of memories.

  44. Jenny Messenger

    This does not feature on his greatest hits and in my opion is one of the best songs ever made
    Im having this at my funeral (not soon) I hope but whoooo what a song

  45. David Cranson

    Beautiful . . .
