Sam Neely – You Can Have Her lyrics

You know the other day, I had a friend of mine come up to me,
He said, Sam, I've got a problem with my old lady.
I said, man, you've got to be kiddin' me,
She's one of the finest looking women I've ever seen,
That's when he smiled and said,

Well you can have her, I don't want her, she didn't love me, anyway.
She only wanted, someone to play with,
But all I wanted, was a love to stay.

The girl I loved, she up and left me,
She ran away with, my best friend.
Comes home at night, for just one hour,
When daylight comes, she's gone again.

[Repeat chorus]

When you're stuck with, the wrong woman,
There ain't nothing, that you can do.
Just dig a hole, and crawl right in it,
And pull the ground right in, over you.

[Repeat chorus]

Life without love is, mighty empty,
But the, confession is, good for the soul.
I'd rather have love, for just one hour,
Than have the world, and all it's gold.

[Repeat chorus]

[Repeat chorus]
