When I Loved Her
Kris Kristofferson Lyrics


Well, she didn't look as pretty as some others I have known
And she wasn't good at conversation when we were alone
But she had a way of making me believe that I belonged
And it felt like coming home, when I found her

She seemed to be so proud of me just walking holding hands
And she didn't think that money was the measure of a man
And we seemed to fit together when I held her in my arms
And it left me feelin' warm, when I loved her.
Chorus:
'cause she brightened up the day like the early morning sun
And she made what I was doin' seem worth while
It's the closest thing to living that I guess I've ever known
And it made me want to smile, when I loved her.

I know some of us were born to cast our fortunes to the winds
And I guess I'm bound to travel down a road that never ends
But I know I'll never look upon the likes of her again
And I'll never understand why I lost her

[Chorus:]
'cause she brightened up the day like the early morning sun
And she made what I was doin' seem worth while
It's the closest thing to living that I guess I've ever known
And it made me want to smile, when I loved her.

But she had a way of making me believe that I belonged
And it felt like coming home, when I found her

'Cause she seemed to be so proud of me just walking holding hands
And she didn't think that money was the measure of a man
And we seemed to fit together when I held her in my arms
And it left me feelin' warm, when I loved her

'Cause she brightened up the day like the early morning sun
And she made what I was doin' seem worth while
It's the closest thing to living that I guess I've ever known
And it made me wanna smile, when I loved her

I know some of us were born to cast our fortune to the winds
And I guess, I'm bound to travel down a road that never ends
But I know I'll never look upon the likes of her again
And I'll never understand why I lost her

Whenever Arthur leaves Mary Linton, I always turn the in-game music off and have Arthur ride off somewhere aimlessly with the cinematic camera on with this song playing in the background, imagining how difficult it must be for Arthur to process meeting with and parting with her after such a long absence.

It’s an emotional, tender experience…



























until, inevitably, Arthur’s horse decides to run into something…

In early 1971 my brother had won a call-in contest on a local radio station for a free album. For some reason he couldn't make it so he called me to go down and pick it up. When I got there they had a stack of albums to choose from, I didn't recognize any of the artists so I picked this one because I liked the cover photo. And it turned out to be one of the best albums I ever had. That's how I discovered Kris Kristofferson. My brother never got the album back.
