Vern Gosdin - Break My Mind Lyrics




Baby oh baby
Tell the man at the ticket stand that you've changed your mind
Well let me run on out and tell the cab to keep his meter flying
'Cause if you say goodbye to me babe you're gonna break my mind

Break my mind
Break my mind
Well I just can't stand to hear the big jet engines whine
Break my mind
Break my mind oh Lord
Well if you leave you're gonna leave a babbling fool behind

Baby oh baby
Well let me take your suitcase off of that scale in time
Just tell the man that you suddenly developed a thing about high flying
'Cause if you say goodbye to me you know you're gonna break my mind

Break my mind
Break my mind
Well I just can't stand to hear the big jet engines whine
Break my mind
Break my mind oh Lord
Well if you leave you're gonna leave a babbling fool behind

Break my mind
Break my mind
Well I just can't stand to hear the big jet engines whine
Break my mind
Break my mind oh Lord
Well if you leave you're gonna leave a babbling fool behind
Well if you leave you're gonna leave a babbling fool behind

  12. David Kidd

    Will we ever hear real country music again? 1/20/81

  13. Gary Kerns

    That's a very young picture of Vern Gosdin. "Break my Mind" is one of my favorite songs. It was written by John D. Loudermilk. I wouldn't swear to it, but it seems that George Hamilton IV's 1967 version was the original. I do know that it's been covered innumerable times since.

    Darren Crispin

    I think George did it in the 60s and Vern did it in the 70s
