Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
And anyway I'll be home soon
For once is someone waitin' there
And if you don't mind, I just think on her instead

Your face, she's a picture, babe pictures ain't what I crave
I don't feel this way most generally
I just pit a thousand miles 'tween me and where my thoughts do lie
And I thank you kindly baby to kindly let me be

Your car, she's smooth and fast
Babe, your bourbon's fine but I ain't feelin' free and clear today
Texas loving layin' on my mind
I couldn't do you right babe spinnin' round this way

So, Greensboro woman don't you smile on me
I do not feel like being comforted
And anyway I'll be home soon
For once is someone waitin' there
And if you don't mind, I just think on her instead
