I've held it all inward Lord knows I've tried
It's an awful awakenin' in a country boy's life
To look in the mirror in total surprice
At the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes
Amanda (U) light of my life fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
Amanda (U) light of my life fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
[ guitar ]
There's a measure of people who don't understand
The pleasure of life in a hillbilly band
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen
Now I'm over thirty and still wearing jeans
Amanda (U) light of my life...
