I AIN'T MAD (I'M JUST LEAVIN') (Johnny Russell) George Hamilton IV - 1965 Well my old shirt pocket's filled with everything I own An old toothbrush, three cigarretes and a dirty four-tooth comb My pocketbook is flat and I got no rattlin' change I came to this town with nothin', looks like I'm leavin' with the same But I ain't mad (I ain't mad), I'm just leavin' (I'm just leavin') And I don't see anybody sittin' there by the roadside grievin' I had me a girl when I first hit town, I tell you she was nice I met this cat, he became a friend, started givin' me advice He said that I should treat her mean and she'd always stay Now here's ol' meanie comin' out of town and he married her today But I ain't mad (I ain't mad), I'm just leavin' (I'm just leavin') And I don't see anybody sittin' there by the roadside grievin' I'd write home, but Mom can't read, besides I'm out of stamps You don't see much to write home about sleepin' in a hobo camp The wind blows cold through these worn out jeans, keepin' warm means movin' fast I had a good thing a-goin' for me, but my good times never last But I ain't mad (I ain't mad), uh-huh, I'm just leavin' (I'm just leavin') And I don't see anybody sittin' there by the roadside grievin' I ain't mad (I ain't mad), no, I'm just leavin' (I'm just leavin') And I don't see anybody.......................FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
