Sheâ€™s young and soft and kind And she deserves a whole lot better Than a guitar picking drifter Who never gave a damn.
And if loving me is all She ever wants some gonna let her And Iâ€™ve tried to be kind of man She thinks I am.
She makes those little kitten sounds And ( that ) trembles when I love her She makes me feel so bad and strong in me She whispers how she can not wait To be my babyâ€™s mother Sheâ€™s the only glimpse of God Iâ€™ve ever seen.
Her mama sure had warned her Never take out with a poet For poets travel rocky roads In search of truth and life.
Iâ€™m the only blemish on Her virgin soul but she donâ€™t know it And I thank the Lord sheâ€™s lying gentle By my side tonight.
I thank god she's lying gentle, by my side tonight
