sure gonna miss her

i never did too much to make her stay here
and words of love to her i’d never say
i guess i learned a lesson when she walked out to stay
but i’m sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her every day

i don’t suppose i ever said “i love you”
and i found out too late that wasn’t right
i’m just now realizin’ what i lost, that’s why i’m cryin’
and i’m sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her every night

i know i took her love for granted
guess you could say my love was blind
thought if she left that i could stand it
or else it didn’t matter at the time

i heard she’s found a guy that treats her better
i hope he knows that *he’s a lucky guy*
i know the rumor’s true because i saw her today
and i’m sure gonna miss her, he was walking with her, sure gonna miss her, yes i am

transcriber’s note: logic would dictate that *he’s a lucky guy* should be “he’s a lucky
man” so as to rhyme, more or less, with the following “am.” it may well have been written that
way, but, after 5 listens, i swear he says “guy.”
