Unsettled Ways

Forgive me my unsettled ways.
Don't linger in time
Or finger what's mine.
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself.
 
Forgive me the bad things I do.
Don't ask me to change
Or exchange what I am
For somethin' else. You know that wouldn't do.
 
If time gets too heavy
And you can no longer bear it
And you need someone to share it,
Tell me girl, I'll try to make amends.
 
Forgive me the ways of my heart.
Don't try to pretend
Or lend me your love.
Don't ask of me what you wouldn't ask yourself.
 
If time gets too heavy
And you can no longer bear it
And you need someone to share it,
Tell me girl, I'll try to make amends.
 
Forgive me my unsettled ways.
Don't linger in time
Or finger what's mine.
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself.
 
Don't make me do what you wouldn't do yourself.

I'll say it over and over. Gordon Lightfoot is a national treasure in Canada. It is impossible to be a bigger star than he is. And that's been true for 50 or so years. He's pretty much on the same level as Maurice Richard.
.
I created this transcription myself. After listening to the song a few times, I referred to the booklet with the lyrics that came with the CD. There isn't a lot that differs, nothing significant, anyway.
.
The CD is from a German label named Bear Family Records, BCD 15699. Near as I can tell, the CD was released in 1992. It consists of both of Lightfoot's third and fourth albums, "Did She Mention My Name" and "Back Here on Earth," the former released in early 1968, the latter later that same year, both of which vinyl records I still own, although I have no idea if they are even playable any more. This song is from the latter album.

Here's a link to Gord's biography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot and another to an article about the album http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back_Here_on_Earth.

Merci !
