  • Nobody in his right mind would've left her
    That was her favorite song
    She sang along every time it came on
    The first time we danced was to Marina Del Rey
    And I fell right there and then
    I didn't want that song to end
    Baby Blue was the color of her eyes
    I can still see them in my mind
    Probably will for the rest of my life

    Damn Strait, you're killing me man
    You know I've always been your biggest fan
    Now I can't even listen
    'Cause I'll get to missing her
    Then the hurt gets worse
    Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
    But now every time that one comes on
    My heart gets broke in half
    But do I wish I could get her back?
    Damn Strait

    The other day right out of a Blue Clear Sky
    You came on in my truck
    I couldn't turn it off fast enough
    I tried to get back in the game
    But this ole heart just ain't the same
    Hell I can't even Give It Away

    Damn Strait, you're killing me man
    You know I've always been your biggest fan
    Now I can't even listen
    'Cause I'll get to missing her
    Then the hurt gets worse
    Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
    But now every time that one comes on
    My heart gets broke in half
    But do I wish I could get her back?
    Damn Strait

    I know it ain't your fault
    That she left me
    And you know you'll always be the king
    But right now I hate everything
    Damn Strait, you're killing me man
    You know I've always been your biggest fan
    And now I can't even listen
    'Cause I'll get to missing her
    Then the hurt gets worse
    Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
    But now every time that one comes on
    My heart gets broke in half
    But do I wish I could get her back?
    Damn Strait
    Damn Strait

    Nobody in his right mind would've left her
    That was her favorite song
    She sang along every time it came on
