Before I Change My Mind - 5:05  |  Morse SOCAN/BMI
 


Country boy and a city girl,
two renegade hearts in a renegade world
he was lean and she was long,
and their hearts beat faster than a hard rock song.

I'd picked him up, he'd 'bin thumbin' through
and you know by Montreal I knew
that the girl had taken hold,
and things were never gonna be like they was before
and about then I asked him "son just where is it that you're goin'?"

He said I gotta get back to Pictou Town, I'm edgy and I'm feelin' down,
and I gotta get back on solid ground or I aint gonna last.

He said I gotta get off of this merry-go-round,
with her baby and with her eyes so brown
and I gotta get back to Pictou Town,
before I change my mind.

Lord knows that love is funny like that, runnin' away or runnin' back
Lord knows the road is long and lonely,
when you're torn between one too many one and only's
He said I gotta get back to Pictou Town.

Lord knows the road is long and lonely,
when you're torn between one too many one and only's.

You know his story reminded me,
'bout a time in my life now it seems just like a dream
he'd fell in love a long way from home, but he was too messed up,
didn't know which way to run.

Country boy and a city girl, two renegade hearts same renegade world
and he was lean, and she was long,
and their hearts beat faster than a hard rock song
everything was alright, why did it have to be all wrong.

He said I gotta get back to Pictou Town, I'm edgy and I'm feelin' down
and I gotta get back on solid ground or I aint gonna last

He said I gotta get off of this merry-go-round,
with her baby and with her eyes so brown
and I gotta get back to Pictou Town,
before I change my mind.

I've gotta get back to Pictou Town, before I change my mind...
I've gotta get back to Pictou Town...

This piece features the line "torn between one too many one and only's" which I don't think I'd ever heard before. I'm not sure how it came to me but I decided to run with it.

The song is about a small town boy who falls for a big city girl, meanwhile he has a small town girl back home. Torn between one too many one and only's. - PM
