Faron Young – I Hardly Knew It Was You lyrics

Tinted hair and painted lips polish on your fingertips I hardly knew it was you
Shabby dress and worn out lock a shadow of the girl I love I hardly knew it was you
You once said that you would have no one not no one will ever have you
A life of hardship and disgrace I see it written on your face I hardly knew it was you
[ fiddle ]
Custom jewels and cheap perfume you're like a rose that's lost it's bloom
I hardly knew it was you
From the simple girl I knew you have changed dear doin' through
I hardly knew it was you
We could have lived our lives together but your heart had a mind all it's own
What a pity what a shame I don't know who's to blame
But I hardly knew it was you
