She’s everything I’m not

 Play

She drinks whiskey, but knows when to stop
She’s like Magellan she never gets lost
She can stretch a dollar from fifty cents
I know where she stands it’s never on the fence
She believes in God and she believes in me
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need

She’s traveled coast to coast, from Memphis to Rome
Ain’t met a stranger she didn’t know
She’s almost always right but says when she’s wrong
As hard as she tries she can’t sing a song
She’s the key that unlocks the best part of me
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need

She’s everything I am not from the twang when she talks
Down to her skin sweet smellin soft
She’s everything I want and never could be
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need

Ain’t done nothing that’s leaves a scar
Ain’t put a tiny scratch on my heart
She lives each day without regret
Ain’t made me cry from something she said
She knows the roads I’ve walked but sees what I can be
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need

She’s everything I am not from the twang when she talks
Down to her skin sweet smellin soft
She’s everything I am not from the way that she walks
Into a room and everything stops
She’s everything I want and never could be
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need

She believes in God and she believes in me
She’s everything I’m not and the only thing I need
