George Jones – She Once Lived Here lyrics

The mayor gave me the key to the city
No welcome wagons already appeared
But again I'll be packing and leaving
For it's plain now that she once lived here.

It may be that I'll never forget her
'Cause she's love and love lives everywhere
Could it be that I'll always be saying
I got to go for she once lived here.

I see her face in the cool of the evening
I hear her voice in each breathe that clear
Oh, there must be a town without memories
But not this one for she once lived here.

I got to go now for she once lived here...
