Lyrics:

Ain't got nothing to write on
Ain't got nothing to write with
But I got some time here with thoughts running through my head
But, good Lord, what am I to do
It feels like there's a song coming through
So, I'm stuck here thinking with a song in my head

I got a song in my head
Got a song in my head
Normally I would write it down instead
But I can't, so I'm stuck here sittin' with a song in my head

I'm sitting here in the meeting house
In Sunday morning meeting
Trying to pray to God as best as I can
But even as I try to pray
There's something getting in the way
Song-in-my-head is happening again

I got a song in my head
Got a song in my head
Normally I'd be praying now instead
But I can't right now 'cause I got me a song in my head

Yes, you can write when there's nothing to write on
Yes, you can write when there's nothing to write with
And sometimes that's exactly what you have to do

Shifting gears and driving
Both my hands are busy
The radio's playing something I don't know
But the radio fades and my thoughts get loud
And I can't do nothing about it now
There's song in my head instead of on the radio

I got a song in my head
Got a song in my head
I wish that I could write it down instead
But I'm driving right now...
I can't write it down...
But I don't want to lose it...
So I gotta keep on...
Driving along with a song in my head
