Well, I been through a couple romances
And I've had a few heartbreaks
But when you're lookin' for a one in a million girl
I guess that's a chance you take

You still got to go through the motions
Even though you might get hurt
So I set my sights every Saturday night
Put my love on full alert

For a girl like you, a girl like you
There ain't nothin' that a good ol' boy like me won't do
For a heart so true and eyes so blue
I've been searchin' like an old bloodhound
All around for a girl like you

A lot of small town boys can't wait to leave home
For bigger and better things
But all I ever wanted was a girl like you
A picket fence and a front porch swing

And tonight beneath that neon
The light of my life just shined
And I know down deep you're the one for me
And I'm ready to walk the line

For a girl like you, a girl like you
There ain't nothin' that a good ol' boy like me won't do
For a heart so true and eyes so blue
I've been searchin' like an old bloodhound
All around for a girl like you

Ah, swing it girl

Well, I bet my daddy married a girl like you
My granddaddy before him and his daddy too
I grew up next door to a girl like you
And all I ever wanted was to share my life with

A girl like you, with a girl like you
There ain't nothin' that a good ol' boy like me won't do
For a heart so true and eyes so blue
I've been searchin' like an old bloodhound
All around for a girl like you

I've been searchin' like an old bloodhound
With my nose to the ground
All around up and down this town for a girl like you
Hey, yeah, for a girl like you
