To Change My Mind
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 4-20-2016

How convenient it must be
To hear a choir that, you can't see
And make up rules that set you free
With just one voice to babble on

To have a world that never ends
Close your eyes and just pretend
That he might even come again
For three sad Marys' and two lost Johns

--- Chorus ---
I hear the voices singing
I hear the guitars ringing
In my time of need, I sense my master's peace
But I hear Proud Mary and Please Don't Bury me

So keep it simple, but not too dumb
Stick to natural phenomenon
Life and death and Blonde on Blonde
When someone's right, is someone wrong

If anybody looks to deep
They'll find the wolves ate the sheep
Is no one left to pray or weep
Three Hail Marys' for two lost Johns

-Repeat Chorus-

Go and spend your dime,
But why try to change my mind
That's how it is and how it was meant to be
Yeah, since I heard Proud Mary and Please Don't Bury Me
