Alabama – I Showed Her lyrics

She told me I should straighten up my ways or she'd be walkin' out
But I guess I was just too blind to see or maybe just too proud
So I never thought twice when she loaded up her things and drove away
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back
Took off my work clothes and left them laying right there on the floor
Cause I knew she'd pick 'em up when she got home like a hundred times before
And just to make it easier for her I left the light on on the porch
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back
I guess I showed her how much she had to lose showed her who was really who
I know she's hurtin' now looks like I showed her

I must have seen the movie of the month a dozen times or more
I watched my favorite team play ball but I never heard a score
Cause the whole time I was listening for the moment when she'd walk through the door
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I know she'll be back
I guess I showed her...
If I could I show her how much she had to lose I'd show her I've been hurtin' too
If I could hold her now I'd really show her
