why can’t i leave her alone lyrics – george strait

i know i don’t want her, i swear that’s a fact
but the thought of somebody else rubbing her back
just kills me
oh, it kills me

i know she don’t love me, i know she ain’t home
so why in the h*ll do i pick up this phone
and call her
why do i call her?

[chorus:]
i’ve dropped by her mama’s stoned out of my mind
just to hear that it’s over from her one more time
as if i didn’t see that red chevy not slowing down
loaded down and rolling down our road
yeah, she’s already left
so why can’t i leave her along

i’ve wrote her letters signed i was a fool
she wrote me back saying go find a stool
and drink one
like you’ve always done
so that’s what i did cause that’s what i do
backsliding, hiding away from the truth
’til the tears run
oh, here comes one

[chorus]

i’ve dropped by her mama’s stoned out of my mind
just to hear that it’s over from her one more time
as if i didn’t see that red chevy not slowing down
or turning ’round, loaded down, heading out of town
or rolling down our road
she’s already left
so why can’t i leave her alone

i know i don’t want her, i swear that’s a fact
but the thought of somebody else rubbing her back
just kills me
