before i met you lyrics – earl scruggs

i thought i’d seen pretty girls in my time
that was before i met you
i never saw one that i wanted for mine
that was before i met you

i thought i was swinging the world by the tail
i thought i could never be blue
i thought i’d been kissed and i thought i’d been loved
but that was before i met you

i wanted to ramble and always be free
that was before i met you
i said that no woman could ever hold me
that was before i met you

i thought i was swinging the world by the tail
i thought i could never be blue
i thought i’d been kissed and i thought i’d been loved
but that was before i met you

they tell me i must reap just what i have sown
darlin’, i hope it’s not true
for once i made plans of living alone
but that was before i met you

i thought i was swinging the world by the tail
i thought i could never be blue
i thought i’d been kissed and i thought i’d been loved
but that was before i met you
