Rimes, LeAnn - Probably Wouldn't Be This Way Lyrics

Got a date a week from Friday with the preacher's son
Everybody says he's crazy
I'll have to see

I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came
I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves

I'm probably going on and on
It seems I'm doing more of that these days

I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh You left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I'd never seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Mama says that I just shouldn't speak to you
Susan says that I should just move on

You oughta see the way these people look at me
When they see me 'round here talking to this stone

Everybody thinks I've lost my mind
But I just take it day by day

I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh You left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes I feel an angel's touch
Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I'd never seen your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Probably wouldn't be this way

Got A Date a week from Friday with the preacher's son
Everybody says I'm crazy
Guess I'll have to see

Rimes, LeAnn Probably Wouldn't Be This Way Comments
  1. Diana Hayse

    You do it ...i see a ring on her finger. If this is based on my ex husband. Oh hell no!!! I'm done with that forever. I love someone else..even if he doesn't love me.

  2. Benjamin Cummins

    I lost my mom 11 years ago to cancer and I'm still. In pain with her been gone I miss her so much

  3. Justin Rheam

    Who's here 2020

  4. Shiana Maharaj

    This song reminds me of going on road trips with my mom I miss her so much

  5. Lynda Czika

    This song will always remind me of my Aunt who passed in 2005. I would sit in her condo while caring for her three cats while she fought for her life in the hospital. It was such a dark and sad time. It was the first time I heard this song and though it was hauntingly beautiful. 😰

  6. Savannah James

    You ought to see the way these people look at me.....😔

  7. Rick Breedlove

    2001 I was so stupid I really need a ride from where I was. I was so messed up on drugs i could barely talk but I needed to leave. She didn't want to come and I made her (she was tired couldn't stay awake) but she loved me and came anyways. Yelling at her was the last time I talked to her and the last time I did any drug. To this day I won't even take an aspirin for a headache. :(

  8. Larry Roberts

    Thank you💔

  9. Debbie Merritt

    20 years. I’ll never get over loosing you... so fast.

  10. She runs

    13 year old me used to sing this not knowing this was about death, however she did know it was about heartbreak especially when her crush moved on to someone else. Lol dramatic self.

  15. Gilly 1

    You never get over a lost love.... One day, if you're lucky, you find another.

  16. george smith

    I've lived this song for a long long time, after my 26yr old bride of 2yrs 98days passed away. Minus the taking a bath, but I've moved on. Yet it still hurts 12.5yrs later.

  17. Lance Kilkenny

  19. Donna Malfy

    I never thought I'd feel that way when I got picked up at school for my best friends fureral. No one called to let me know til that day. I never got to say good bye. I miss him so much never even got to tell him that I was in love with him. He was everything

  20. Shannan Dinet

    So sorry for all your losses. Y’all are all in my prayers. I’ve lost people to.

  21. parks fam

    June 22 2017 my husband and I were inside our house and he was cooking me my bday dinner and my neighbor knocked on the door. I knew who it was because I could hear him talking to himself so I told my husband to answer the door (they were friends) and he shot him point blank as soon as he opened the door and then came into my house and shot me then turned around and killed himself. I survived, my husband did not. Everybody knew he was gone before I even woke up from hospital. At that time our son was 7. I still think about him everyday and wish I could have saved him

    katy bourassa

    My god. Why did he shoot?

    parks fam

    @katy bourassa I dont know. There was no reason, he wasn't provoked. All I know is depression medication was mixed up and nobody did anything about it and I guess he snapped and needed to take someone out with him before he killed himself.


    Wow ! I'm speechless

    katy bourassa

    @parks fam I'm so sorry.

  22. C Middleton

    Missing you every single second of every single day... til my last breath. Our boy is a spitting image of you. I see you in him every day. It’s bittersweet really. I know you would be so proud. I pray your soul is resting in peace my love. As for mine.. it died the moment your heart stopped beating.
    Forever Yours xoxo

    Love Always, your girl.

  25. Romel Barola

    I just found out this song recently this morning, sung by some passenger on MRT while I'm on my way down south. I heard them talking it's a kind of a very sad song because it's about being widow of losing someone dearly.

  26. Robert Hewitt

    This is a sad song but this is what happens when you in love not fake love that you have to pretend some ppl do that

  56. Michelle My Bell

    I lost my Best Friend/Husband May. 16, 2019. 13 days before he would have been 52. He had Brain Cancer that we fought so hard to cure. I held his hand and kissed his sweet face when he took his last breath in a hospital bed in our bedroom. I took care of him at home for 6 months after he became physically unable to walk or care for himself and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I am 40 yrs old and
    will NEVER love anyone like I loved My David. We have 2 beautiful kids that will always be my world but are 22 and 28 and have their own life. I can't wait to be with my Soulmate again oneday. Hopefully sooner then later.
    I love you always and forever David.💔

  61. Valerie Nimchuk

    Beautiful song, wish she was still on the radio...My heart goes out to all the people who lost their loved ones.

  62. Sara Spills it all

    My husband of 18 yeas passed away March 27, 2018. We met at my first job when I was 16 and he was 19. We married three years later.

    Two beautiful daughters came from our marriage. He was an alcoholic who chose the drink over his family. Yet it was pneumonia that killed him. He wasn’t feeling well and stayed home from work for the first time in 6 years. Our oldest was a teenager and sick as well so she was sleeping in her room. I thought they had a stomach bug.

    I spent the day curled up in bed with him while he slept and moaned in his sleep. He didn’t want to go to the doctor but promised me he would go if he wasn’t better the next day. My youngest and I left to go to the store.

    I came home two hours later and found him dead. My children both saw their father dead on our bedroom floor. The fluid had filled his lungs and killed him. I often wonder how I could be so stupid to think it was a stomach bug. He died while I went shopping and then got taco bell for dinner. It’s something that haunts me forever.

    I have a new man in my life now. Yet I will never love anyone the way I loved my husband. I never planned on being a widow at 37. He passed three days before my 38th birthday. I’ll always love you my David.

  63. Melissa Manzana

  94. Jon Cithisen

    Thank all who helped, and you for this song.
    A joyful and painful song with so much objective and subjective interpretations.
    We know our Creator, with all of our upbringings, life full of joyful sometimes difficult even anguishing relationships - is the source of Perfect Inner Peace(complete harmonious well being with God)
    and Justice(complete sharing God's Perfect Goodness with one another) meeting one another where each of exist in our life's complicated journey. Any one on whom God's Favor Rests, in plateaus of understanding one's self and others objectively are working for when needed mutual forgiveness and healing.
    We all desire for goodness sake, Peace on earth and goodwill toward one another. Yes?
    When Jesus Messiah reached the end of His 3 - 3-1/2 year ministry - the culmination of The Annunciation, The Visitation, The Nativity, The Dedication in The Temple, and The Asking & Answering Questions in The Temple Showing Astounding Wisdom - before, during, and after these Sacred events:
    He knew the Spiritual, Family, & Community situation resulted in powerful persons, with much influence well know and not well known - would result in the powerful Romans & other gentiles and Jews who misunderstood him in full knowledge or lack of full knowledge - for reasons of power, prestige, wealth (lack of prudent stewardship of earthly possessions rich or poor for one's own good and the good of others), and pleasure seeking (summed up as 'the love of money is the root of all evil,' : would result in being falsely judged, condemned, and put to tasting an agonizing death. Why did He do it? Because, He knew that showing lack of fortitude with all things for our benefit considered would empower those misleading the people (and vicariously us) to do much more sometimes only seductive (harming not well formed hearts(human wills, souls, and bodies) oppressive persecuting martyring helpless persons and families; already deliberately being miss-taught who & why & what to do regarding The Messiah of God Is.
    Why did He ascend? So that every person in humanity will grow personally in each of their own understanding to imitate The Messiah in The Form of a Man, (His Rib contained The Form of a Woman)
    like (Adam & Eve though Created at the same time - The Rib - with Adam naturally desiring to be in Holy Matrimony with Eve naturally desiring to be in Holy Matrimony with Adam - for we know that in as much as we as families imitate Christ - are Godly for goodness sake - we are in helping one another relationship with God - Espoused to God. Just like family members are espoused to one another. Husband to wife. Father and Mother to son or daughter. Brother to brother. Brother to sister. Sister to sister. Sister to brother.
    Grand parents to grand parents who are natural brethren or cousins *or* neighborly, with all of these relationship reflected, no matter the anguishing disharmonious ways so many misinterpret how each generation needs to express charity toward one another; with God co-creating the generation of children to generations of our time to the next. From the beginning of time, till now, until the end of time as we know it.
    And whatever misunderstanding - interiorly in one's own journey - because of the reverberating of un-melodious, disharmonious, dis-chords - sometimes sweet charitably sounding justifications in historical circumstance and personal situations : are attempts with states of full knowledge, in the place of true resolute diligently meeting one another either in planting seeds of harmony - or directly being ministers of healing.
    Yes, every culture in the world has revealed knowledge in harmony with The Gospel as expressions in myriads of written words that perfectly reflect the Gospel, or solemn prayerful books, and family relationships with neighborly community relationships Completely Know to God.
    With a clear chain of custody - by diligent walk the walk sincerely caring family members and families, called and chosen - since Adam & Even - every stage in between always respected goodness from anyone God fearing (reverencing God goodness with awe, when I do God's will I help myself & others, when I do not do God's will I hurt myself & others) persons and people of other cultures - *and*
    since the Revelation of Christ - how to interpret even the most difficult to understand Biblical Texts.
    Each of us, with out all of the combined serving charity with all due diligence handed down in Formal Writings for 2000 years - expressions of interpretations - use a natural limited understanding from our own perspective fallible interpretations of these things, hurting the cause of Charity for all concerned.
    Jesus The Messiah said that Heaven and earth will pass away -
    (times in history when the world starved for true serving Goodness - Justice - Charity in many families, neighborhoods, all the way up to nations by The Gospel - whereby we only have each other to 'blame,' for lack of assertive diligent witness or sharing in evil knowing or not knowing)
    But His Words will never pass away.
    Without a knowable diligently handed down knowledge, heart, nurturing one another toward one another's inner peace(total well being with God) of The Divine Revelation of Jesus The Christ, though by The Natural Law given by The God of Nature our Creator (reference, The Declaration of Independence) everyone with their families, friends, neighbors, coworkers, acquaintances near and far do serve compassionate goodness to one level of plateau or another - the whole world and parts of the world by history repeating constantly by Grace climb to plateaus then fall gradually or suddenly from these plateaus of Grace. At times & places when all The Seeds of The Word in every culture, including The Seeds of The Word proper interpretation of Salvation History through Israel, by and through one another's sharing The Gospel in Relationship to Jesus The Christ who Chose this as a Lamp-post specifically via the reflected specifics through Israel to our very day; we have greater true (Peace - total well being with God).
    The world (family members, friends, neighbors - all the way up to nations) will struggle with repeating historical anguishing disharmony dis-melody dis-chord of the Perfect Music & Words expressed in many ways by promises to live by (Covenant abiding) truly Loving God & Neighbor with All of our heart(spirit will for goodness), all of our soul (conscious psyche for peace),
    all of our body(transcending time generation-ally sharing objective nurturing justice)
    with mutual forgiveness and true healing - as long as by The Eternal Living The Jesus Christ who embodied the Ten Stringed Timbrel always in every facet of God-In-Man-Form Eternal Being sending the music, words, & all expressions of The Ten Works of Resolute Promised Love of God and Neighbor - called The Ten Commandments to *every* water drop of Creation that give power to hurting others with seeds of dis-harmony dis-chord dis-tuned works of chaos static false music notes - sometimes sweet sounding with subtlety for personal or community even a nation's gain - especially by ideologies that use flipping on any cause human need or situation or sincerely conforming to Christ's Peace(total well being with God) rights of children & adults - to teach one another a true caring conscience.
    "In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord comes to me?" - Luke 1:39-43
    "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name is called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace." - Isaiah 9:6
    "Beware of false Prophets who come to you in lambs' clothing, but from within they are plundering wolves." - Matthew 7:15
    "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
    "Now I urge you, brothers[and sisters], to watch out for those who create divisions and obstacles that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them." - Romans 16:17
    "Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him." Micah 3:5
    Long May we live as truly serving The Kingdom of Charity, The Kingdom of God, The Kingship of Jesus Christ.

  97. Irene Territory Channel

    Got a date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
    Everybody says he's crazy; I'll have to see

    I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came
    I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves

    I'm probably going on and on
    It seems I'm doing more of that these days

    I probably wouldn't be this way
    I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
    I never pictured every minute without you in it
    Oh, you left so fast
    Sometimes I see you standing there
    Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
    Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
    God gave me a moment's grace
    'Cause if I never see your face
    I probably wouldn't be this way

    Mama says that I just shouldn't speak to you
    Susan says that I should just move on

    You ought to see the way these people look at me
    When they see me 'round here talking to this stone

    Everybody thinks I've lost my mind
    But I just take it day by day

    I probably wouldn't be this way
    I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
    I never pictured every minute without you in it
    Oh, you left so fast
    Sometimes I see you standing there
    Sometimes I feel an angel's touch
    Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
    God gave me a moment's grace
    'Cause if I never see your face
    I probably wouldn't be this way

    I probably wouldn't be this way

    Got a date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
    Everybody says I'm crazy
    Guess I'll have to see
