She Loved A Lot In Her Time

She Loved A Lot In Her Time

George Jones

I started drinking and actin' crazy
Way back in sixty five
Mama would pray and say, he's my baby
Lord, please keep him alive

Sister came home with two little children
Her man had left her alone
Mama knew too well the hurt she was feelin'
'Cause daddy had been gone so long

We all did our part to add to her pain
We all broke her heart but she never complained

She loved a lot in her time
She watched love grow and die on the vine
She stood in the shadows
So others could shine
She loved a lot in her time

Mama's prayers were answered a long time ago
I ain't touched a drink in ten years
Sister remarried to a good ol' boy
They don't live far from here

Mama's work is done
Now, she's gone on home
The words in our hearts
Are engraved on her stone

She loved a lot in her time
She watched love grow and die on the vine
She stood in the shadows
So others could shine
She loved a lot in her time

She stood in the shadows
So others could shine
She loved a lot in her time

Mama, you loved a lot in your time
