Lyrics

I was sittin' in a restaurant in West Virginia
Stopped in to town to get me some dinner
She came by and asked "what can I get ya?"
With a smile as big as can be
I said "I'm gonna have me a plate of fried chicken."
She took my order and headed to the kitchen
Came and sat down asked "What else can I get ya?"
And she got the best of me.

A few months later we headed to the preacher
I became a singer and she became a teacher
We bought a little house where the creek runs deeper
And started up a family
Every day we do a little huggin and kissin
But my strawberry blonde would rather go fishin'
And when the catfish run she's a woman on a mission
And she got the best of me

She was a strawberry blonde with big green eyes and a smile like a bright moonbeam
She was a credit to her gender I became a big spender because she got the best of me

She ain't much on makeup or botox
But she knows how to skip rocks
And in a life full of hard knocks
Strong as any woman could be
She don't need to be the center of attention
Big on the truth and small on pretension
The cat's meow and O did I mention
That she got the best of me

Now this overdrive world never gets this girl
She can beat it at its own game
And the thing that's got me spellbound
She's sharing my last name!

We got a house full of kids and a hound and a kitty
I got older and she's so pretty
She laughs in the face of lifes' nitty-gritty
I'm as rich as a man can be
Each Summer and Fall and Spring and Winter
I think back to that night in West Virginia
And I keep thinkin' what else can I get ya?
Cause she got the best of me

She was a strawberry blonde with big green eyes and a smile like a bright moonbeam
She was a credit to her gender I became a big spender because she got the best of me
She got the best of me
She got the best of me
O she got the best of me
