Rhett Akins - She Said Yes Lyrics

He'd never had given much thought to dancin'
But she gave a lot of thought to bein' asked
Well he'd never been good
At comin' right on out and askin'
And she'd never been given a chance
But somethin' moved across that old gym floor
When fear was hold'n fast
And to his surprise the words came at last

And she said yes to his half-hearted request
And they held on for dear life till the last song played
They won't let go, it's beyond their control
They lit a flame with the match God had made
When she said yes

From that night on the fire was burnin'
And it sure did shine in his light
And he knew as long
As this old world kept turnin'
He wanted her by his side
So with a ring and a nervous smile
And lines that he rehearsed
He said the sweetest words
That she'd ever heard

And she said yes to his half-hearted request
And they held on for dear life till the last song played
They won't let go, it's beyond their control
They lit a flame with the match God had made
When she said yes

They lit a flame with the match God had made
When she said yes

    Back when Love was love and country was country and then the two merged and a great song was created.

    Bethany White

    You are perching to the now choir

  55. Barbara Cremeans

    Quite a few years ago, I stumbled on this song. It was the "b" side of a record & I only heard it because the jukebox it was in would occasionally play a random song.
    It might have been chance that introduced me to it, but I fell in love with it immediately!
    "She Said Yes" has to be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. And I remember dancing to it on my wedding day.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the gateway to some of the best memories of my life!

  56. Tia Payne

    Great video..vintage or not.

  68. Lauren Rucker

    So I have always loved this song but when.insaw the music video I just started crying. I am a disabled person who wears braces on my legs and the beginning where it says she'd gave alot og thought to being aak just broke my heart. I didn't even go to my senior prom because I knew no one wanted to.try and dance with me. This song will be played at my wedding whenever that happens. This music video touches me in a way nothing else has. Thanks for this Rhett Akins

    countrygirl country musiclover

    FRANKIE JOHNNY you must not know about his EQUALLY country and EQUALLY talented son Thomas Rhett (something to do with my hands get me some of that it goes like this make me wanna die a happy man unforgettable and too many others to list)

  93. Jennifer Dijames

    Rhett,what a song.I haven't heard your voice in a while.your son is doing great with his music.in fact he's coming to buffalo this year.

  94. OutOfSight OutOfMind

    One of the sweetest songs in country music.

  95. Fran Brister

    love himmmmm

  96. Tyler Davis

    Rhett is the man

  97. my love songs

    It is touching that the woman in this video was made to be physically handicapped. There had to be a reason why she had never been "given the chance" to dance with a guy before. Wow! I have loved this song for about 25 years or so, and i now have a new appreciation for it. It is over the top beautiful, and not your typical love song, because of the special circumstances involved. Awesome! I do wonder if he originally wrote the song about a physically handicapped girl, or was the video, showing the girl being handicapped, just an idea? Anyway, this would be a great wedding song. Of course, there are pop, country, metal, rock, oldies, r&b songs, jazz, folk, whatever song from other genres of music that would also be awesome wedding songs. There is one other country wedding song i can think of off the top of my head that would be an awesome wedding song. That song is "Amazed" by Lonestar.
