Jerry Jeff Walker — If I'd Loved You Then lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Well, I'm not the kind of man who sits and complains
I've always been the kind of man who likes to take a chance
I have lived my life to the fullest, I have no regrets
Most of the time I feel I've had the best of it

But I see life's a one way street, you walk along, before too long
You look back and see what you believe just might be wrong
But every now and then I think about what might have been
I wonder how good life would have been if I'd loved you then

Well, I would never take back my wild oats for anything
But I was ready the day we exchanged our wedding rings
I had done all I could do alone, oh, I needed you
And I've found out true love brings out the best in you


And every day I think it can't get better than this
But love is always changing as we learn to give
I love you more than ever before and it just dawned on me
The longer I love you the more that you will mean to me
