A songwriters notebook

New Song - That Woman Did Me Right

Turn on any juke box

you will hear somebody say

that their heart is crushed and mangled

and a woman is to blame

I guess that it is easy

to try and pin the crime

on the one that's always there

when the tears are in your eyes

I could play that game and say the woman did me wrong

but that'd be wrong

cause that woman did me right

 

People they are talking

they want to know the score

why me and my sweet baby 

are not together anymore

They keep on with their questions

they won't stop until they know

So maybe it is better

if I just pay my tab and go

cause I could simply lie and say

the woman did me wrong

but that'd be wrong 

cause that woman did me right

 

Chorus

she made me feel in ways I'd never felt before

gave me all the best years of my life

and if she's far away in someone else's arms tonight

it's all on me

cause that woman did me right

 

I could look for reasons

i could write them on the wall

if I lived a thousand years

I would not find them all

but if I am as honest

as I'd like myself to be

it's as simple as a finger

that is pointed back at me

as much as I might want to say

the woman did me wrong

That'd be wrong

cause that  woman did me right.

 

Chorus

She made me feel in ways I'd never felt before

gave me all the best years of my life

and if she's far away in someone else's arms tonight

it's all on me

cause that woman did me right
