Loretta Lynn - You're The Only Good Thing Lyrics

Are you thinking that I don't care for you
Could it be you believe that I've been untrue
Oh listen sweetheart it just cannot be
For you're the only good thing that happened to me
We've had our ups and downs like all lovers do
But you know in your heart that I worship you
So don't ever think of setting me free
For you're the only good thing that happened to me
[ steel ]
If you ever should think that I don't love you
That I'm not satisfied with the things that you do
I want you to know and please understand
There's nothing in this world worth the touch of your hand
We've had our ups and downs...

  37. nikita simpson

    Well I like my lovin' done country style
    And this little girl would walk a country mile
    To find her a good old slow talkin' country boy
    I said a country boy
    I'm about as old fashioned as I can be
    And I hope you're lik'in what you see
    'Cause if you're lookin' at me
    You're lookin' at country
    You don't see no city when you look at me
    'Cause a country is all I am
    I love runnin' bare-footed
    Through the old corn fields
    And I love that country ham
    Well you say I'm made just to fit your plans
    But does a barnyard shovel fit your hands?
    If your eyes are on me
    You're lookin' at country
    This here country is a little green
    And there's a lot of country that a you ain't seen
    I'll show you around if you'll show me a weddin' band
    I said a weddin' band
    When it comes to love
    Well I know about that
    Country folks all know where it's at
    If you're lookin' at me
    You're lookin' at country
    You don't see no city when you look at me
    'Cause country is all I am
    I love a runnin' bare-footed through the old cornfields
    And I love that country ham
    Well you say I'm a made just to fit your plans
    But does a barnyard shovel fit your hands?
    If your eyes are on me
    You're lookin' at country
    If your eyes are on me
    You're lookin' at country
