Dan Bern - Never Wrote a Song

Song Lyrics

I never wrote a song in Paris
I guess this'd be the one
Got some time to kill at the train station
An hour, to be exact

Then I'm on my way to Germany
See if I can find my daughter
Saw her once when she was one year old
Now she's nearly ten

Never been 100% sure if she's mine
The timing at the time seemed a little weird

Mmmm, never wrote a song
Mmmm, never wrote a song

Took me this long to get up the courage
Or find the time or something to go back
Don't know for sure if she's even living in the same town
Maybe she got married and changed her name
Don't know for sure if they want to see me
Or turn me away or try to get all my money

Those are the fears that kept me away for so long
But it seemed like the right time to just go

Mmmm, never wrote a song
Mmmm, never wrote a song

That's why I'm sitting here at the train station
Scribbling these words on the back of an old newspaper
Never wrote a song in Paris
I guess this'd be the one
