Asleep At The Wheel
"The Girl I Left Behind Me" lyrics

The Girl I Left Behind Me

(With the Avett brothers)

Wrote her a letter
When I'd known better
And asked her to be my wife
Along came a feller
And hit me on the smeller
And it almost took my life

Oh that girl
That pretty little girl
The girl I left behind me
The rosy cheeks
And the curly hair
The girl I left behind me

Rode ahead
To the place she said
And it always there you'll see
She said "I'm true
When you get through
Ride back and you will find me"

Oh that girl
That pretty little girl
The girl I left behind me
The rosy cheeks
And the curly hair
The girl I left behind me

The monkey and the frog
The turtle and the dog
The chick, the weasel, and the flea
The fuzzy raccoon
And the ugly baboon
They all got a wife but me

Oh that girl
That pretty little girl
The girl I left behind me
The rosy cheeks
And the curly hair
The girl I left behind me

Last night I slept in a sycamore tree
With the wind and the rain all around me
Tonight I'll sleep in a warm feather bed
With the girl I left behind me

Oh that girl
That pretty little girl
The girl I left behind me
The rosy cheeks
And the curly hair
The girl I left behind me

Oh that girl
That pretty little girl
The girl I left behind me
The rosy cheeks
And the curly hair
The girl I left behind me
