Girl From Minnesota

Words and Music By Perry Mathers


There’s a girl from Minnesota
Who is always on my mind
She has a sadness in her smile
And a longing in her eyes
And it seems to me she’s wantin’ something
She don’t think she’ll ever find
There’s a girl from Minnesota
Who is always on my mind

Well it’s clear her heart’s been broken
And she’s afraid I’ll do the same
So she won’t let me get close
Always pushin’ me away
If I could only reach her
I know that I could ease her pain
But it’s clear her heart’s been broken
And she’s afraid I’ll do the same

She sees herself as hopeless
No damn good for anything
She’ll say she isn’t worth the heartache
That lovin’ her would bring
But I can see she’s just an angel
Who hasn’t learned to spread her wings
She sees herself as hopeless
No damn good for anything

Now there’s a girl from Minnesota
Who is always on my mind
She has a sadness in her smile
And a longing in her eyes
A more tender-hearted woman
You could never hope to find
There’s a girl from Minnesota
Who is always on my mind

Yes, there’s a girl from Minnesota
Who is always on my mind
