Lyrics

SHE USED TO BE
(Claire Ulanoff/Don May)


Her daddy said back in the second grade
She used to be the one girl who wasn't afraid
To haul off and punch a mean boy right square in the face
For yanking on her ponytail

Her older brothers taught her how to rope and ride, you know
She used to be a big deal in the local junior rodeo
At eighteen she was a beauty queen, Miss Abilene
The girl sure used to be a lot of things...she used to be

My one good reason why, no more searching
Thought I'd finally found my meant to be
She was a shot of grace, a leap of faith
A wild ride to a quiet place
She was all that to me
And I loved her every way I knew how but now I see that
Mine was just another thing she used to be

Like a worn out angel she'd sleep in my arms
She'd smell like summer rain after making love like a thunderstorm
She told me her philosophy was live life furiously
Bless her heart she tried to warn me...she used to be

(Chorus)

She said she had to move on
She said holding on too long
Is just a recipe for misery
I'm grateful for the memories of when she used to be...

(Chorus)
