I love you because you understand, dear
Every little thing I try to do
Your always there to lend a helping hand dear
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

No matter what may be the style or season
I know your love will always see me through
I love you for a hundred, thousand reasons
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you
(Most of, most of all I love you because you're you)

I love you because my heart is lighter
Every time I'm walking by your side
I love you because the future's brighter
The glow to happiness you've opened wide

No matter what the world may say about me
I know your heart will always be true
I love you for the way you never doubt me
But most of all I love you 'cause you're you

    I think a man was writing an apology to his wife for a weekend of honky-tonking. I think he went up behind the house, sat on a stump, and penned these words 60 some-odd years ago, gave the poem to a drinking buddy that had Nashville connections where the poem was put to music, and had the song stolen from him. My grandaddy wrote "I Love You Because."
