Tiger Lyr Req: Before I Met You (Seitz, Lewis, Rader) (10) Lyr Add: THAT WAS BEFORE I MET YOU 25 Sep 02


There's another verse that hasn't been mentioned. Here's the whole thing.

GUEST - How certain are you of that authorship?

THAT WAS BEFORE I MET YOU Flatt & Scruggs

I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time,
That was before I met you.
I never saw one that I wanted for mine,
That was before I met you.

    CHORUS (each stanza)
    I thought I was swingin' the world by the tail.
    I thought I could never be blue.
    I thought I'd been kissed and I thought I'd been loved,
    But that was before I met you.

I wanted to ramble and always be free,
That was before I met you.
I said that no woman could ever hold me,
But that was before I met you.

They tell me I must reap just what I have sown,
Darlin', I hope it's not true.
For, once, I made plans about livin' alone,
That was before I met you.
