I've got my angel on my mind
That's why I'm walkin'
There's such an ache in this old heart, well, I ain't talkin'
The little hand that held mine tight
Just waved goodbye tonight
I've got a sweet love on my mind
That's why I'm walkin'

With an old love on your mind
Life's not worth livin'
I breathe her name with every breath I'm breathin'
Why could I never see
How much she meant to me
I've got a sweet love on my mind
That's why I'm walkin'

With an old love on your mind
Life's not worth livin'
I breathe her name with every breath I'm breathin'
Why could I never see
How much she meant to me
I've got my angel on my mind
That's why I'm walkin'
I've got my angel on my mind
That's why I'm walkin'
