Jean Shepard – Did I Turn Down A Better Deal lyrics

When I met you long ago there were things I didn't know
But how was I to know how I would feel
When you made a goin' rough it made me see I had it tough
It makes me wonder did I turn down a better deal
If I had another chance to think it over
I'm sure I'd found someone with more appeal
There are things I really crave nice things you never gave
It makes me wonder did I turn down a better deal
[ fiddle - piano - guitar ]
There's been others in my life who offered more to be their wife
Fine things and true love was their deal
But I took you instead I don't know why but I just did
It makes me wonder did I turn down a better deal
Now and then I meet an old flame and I wonder
If I should let him know just how I feel
But I know it's wrong somehow another gives him her love now
And I still wonder did I turn down a better deal
