Emmylou Harris — Before I Met You lyrics

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
