Conley, Earl Thomas - Holding Her And Loving You Lyrics

It's the third hardest thing I'll ever do
Leaving here without you
And the second hardest thing I'll ever do
Is telling her about you

She's been good to me
When things were going rough
How can I tell her now, good ain't good enough
Oh, the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her and loving you

If she'd give me one good reason I'd be gone
But she ain't done one thing wrong
So don't expect me just to walk out of the door
I still love her, but I love you more

She's been good to me
When things weren't going right
She made my days long before you made my nights
So the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her and loving you

Yeah, the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her and loving you
Girl the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Is holding her and loving you

    Rest in peace to Muscle Shoals songwriter, Robert Byrne who wrote a lot of his number ones and a salute to yet another Muscle Shoals songwriter who wrote Holding Her and Loving You, the great Mr Walt Aldridge and he's still got the Midas Touch.
