before i met you lyrics – emmylou harris

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

i thought i was swingin’ 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

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

i thought i was swingin’ 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
but darlin’, i hope that’s not true
‘coz once i made plans about livin’ alone
that was before i met you

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