Keith Whitley - To Be Loved By A Woman Lyrics



I wonder if you realize how good it is to be loved by a woman
A woman you can count on even though she knows you done her wrong
The one who worships you inspite of that old rowdy ground you used to walk on
Who'll stay awake to give you help and thank the Lord you find the native home.

But it's that woman there behind you, the one who makes you who you are
She's not the president's first lady she ain't no motion picture star
But she's the one who keeps you goin' when you'd swear the hope is gone
She's the mother of your children thank God she won't leave you alone.

It's that woman there behind you, the one who makes you who you are
She's not the president's first lady she ain't no motion picture star
But she's the one who keeps you goin' when you'd swear the hope is gone
She's the mother of your children thank God she won't leave you alone...

    William McCloud

    carol vine true very true we lost Keith Whitley to soon to alcohol poisoning at the age of 34 years old when he passed away

  21. Christopher Straney

    Keith Whitley accomplished so very much for only Being Alive 35 year and had horrible alcohol problems. During an interview his mother said that he was exposed to Moonshine and beer at the age of 14. He was singing with Ralph Stanley and famous people most never get to meet Hank senior, Vern Gosdin the list too long. Anyway back then jnder age drinking for famous people well, it wasn't good for a development of his brain. Studies show that if a person is exposed to a drug or alcohol before the age of 18 over a 9 week time frame, they are 50 times more likely to become an alcoholic can an 18 year old hoes exposed to the same 9-week Bender so to speak. Also he wore his heart on his voice but also on his sleeves. I do believe Keith Whitley would have died either way but if the Broken Heart from Lorrie Morgan and her get rich off of a true legend gold-digging ass, if she wasn't so caught up in the glitz and glamour of the industry and certain people that mr. Whitley new would help her Advance her career only for certain types and flavors. I think had things worked out between the two he would have died in his late 40s mid-fifties.

    William McCloud

    That's true we lost keith Whitley to soon to alcohol poisoning to soon he was a very talented person died at the age of 34 years old when he died every song that he had there a purpose for every song that he had and he was a very talented person

  44. Roman Garces

    Thank you!! Remember growing up with folks!! Love my daddy and mom!!! My sisters and I had a simple life ...and we listen to all the great voices ..haha. :o)

  45. Vita Mcvay

    There seems to have been a hurt in his life that remained in darkness! What a wonderful entertainer I agree he did leave wa too soon!

  46. conditionofanonymit1

    what a legendary singer/songwriter, but a waste of talent. Keith Whitley left us just way to soon, he had the good that so many now on the radio would give anything to have. Keith will always be a true country music standard of the highest degree... COA ...

  47. Patricia Vernon

    I wonder just when all these great singers are going to stop being so selfish and only think of themselves and deprive the rest of the world to enjoy and listen to their musical talent. What a waste.

  48. Bradley Rea
