You Never Can Tell

from General Store by Owen Temple



I spent several days thinking of the ways I'd say we're through
But when I let you go I didn't know that I still cared for you
But last Saturday night beneath the barroom lights I saw you out with him
And in a matter of time I changed my mind I wanted you back again

Who'd a thought that I'd be feeling sorry
I'd have guessed that I'd be doing well
Well I saw you and my piece of mind went to pieces
It goes to show with love you never can tell

Well I did not go to the rodeo but I heard you were there
Now the talk of the town is the love you found they say you're quite a pair
I thought wait and see you'll be back with me it's just a matter of time
But something's changed they say you've got a different way of smiling since you were mine


Now it's lonely nights and neon light every day's just the same
Since a church room crowd gathered around to hear you change your name
So I sit and drink and sometimes think about getting out of town
But I never go 'cause you know she just might come back around
