Kris Kristofferson - The Lady's Not For Sale Lyrics




She longed to be a lady,
When she was just a child;
But where the grass was greener, Lord
She done her growin' wild.
Then she tried to spread her tender wings,
And never left the ground;
So she turned to dreams at sweet sixteen
And woke up coming down.

But she tries in her way climbing higher,
And she dies each time she fails;
So give her a home, or leave her alone;
The lady's not for sale.

She ain't ashamed to show her soul,
So she'll sell it for a song.
But free don't mean she's easy
Or right for going wrong.
So let her be the lady, Lord,
She wants so bad to be;
And let her win the gentle man
That she was born to please.

'Cause she tries in her way climbing higher,
And she dies each time she fails;
So give her a home, or leave her alone;
The lady's not for sale.

    how sad! I bought this song in Belfast in Northern Ireland during the war and troubles and Rita sang it and gave heart to many Young Women for strength! No Gentleman! And he should be! Must be the greed of Companies again! X God bless ! Greed! Wonder when it was given did He think Hey up if it comes down to money We're moving in! Disgusting! So so disappointed! Songs were shared and feelings put into them at the time and exchanged with good intentions and good hearts! How sad! I wrote it for You but 30yrs later my feelings and intentions didn't mean a thing! Well to me in Northern Ireland during The Troubles it meant a Hell of a Lot! And now it's nothing but a squabble over money! Well then it meant so much! Good Luck for it won't bring much!
