From the recording The Blackbird Sessions

Lyrics

I Didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
I didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
And now I got a soft patch of earth where I can lay my head

(Oh) Now I got a soft patch of earth
Where I can lay my head
(Yeah) Now I’ve got a soft patch of earth
Where I can lay my head
And whisper softly all the words that I left unsaid

I’ll whisper softly all the words
That I left unsaid
(Oh) I’ll whisper softly all the words
That I left unsaid
Like, “I didn’t mean to kill you boy, I just wanted you dead”

I didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
Oh, I didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
Oh, and now I’ve got a soft patch of earth where I can lay my head

Oh, I didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
I didn’t mean to kill you boy
I just wanted you dead
