Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Just Enough Ashland City lyrics

Well I don't know how I found her
Love works in mysterious ways
Well I could hardly afford a cup of coffee back then
Weren't exactly my salad days
She knew I was just pretending
To be some kind of big shot
It took her two hours to tell a little something about herself
And that's when my heart stopped

She was just enough Ashland City
To wanna watch the sun go down
She was just enough small town girl
To cook my supper in an evening gown
But Lord didn't she look pretty
Doin' that shake and bake
She was just enough Ashland City
And buddy that's about all it takes

A week later we got married
Yeah, I was gonna show her the world
'Cause I was Mr. Sophisticated and she was just a country girl
She wound up showing me everything
I'd ever been dreaming of
Well, I might've known the way to San Jose
But I didn't know a thing about love

She was just enough Ashland City
To wanna put the t-top down
Take a skinny dip in that old gravel pit
About twenty miles out of town
But Lord didn't she look pretty
Swimming out of those bell bottom jeans
She was just enough Ashland City
And that's more than I'd ever seen

That was fifteen years ago
Nothing much has changed
Well I still try to play the big shot yeah and she's still dressing strange
She still has a hard time
Telling you about herself
So let me tell you a little about the woman I love
'Cause buddy she's something else

She's just enough Ashland City
To wanna watch the sun go down
Just enough small town shy
To keep this ol' boy hanging around
Lord don't she look pretty
In an evening gown or jeans
She's just enough Ashland City
That's just enough woman for me
