he’ll never take the place of you lyrics – tammy wynette

sure he gives me everything i ask for
a kind of love that i never knew
and every night he comes home at the same time
but he’ll never ever take the place of you.

he kisses me goodbye every morning
does the little things you’ve always used to do
but no matter how he tries it ain’t the same thing
’cause he’ll never ever take the place of you.

don’t try to see me
when you come back to town
i finally found myself up straight
so please don’t drag me down.

i’ll be good to him, i’ll make him happy
i owe him so much, what else can i do
and our little boy already calls him daddy
still he’ll never ever take the place of you.

no, he’ll never know
oh, that i still love you so
and he’ll never ever
take the place of you…
