Probably Wouldn't Be This Way
LeAnn Rimes Lyrics


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

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

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

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
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
Probably wouldn't be this way

[Outro]
Got a date a week from Friday
With the preacher's son
Everybody says I'm crazy
Guess I'll have to see

LeAnn Rimes could sing the phone book to me and I would still be in awe.

Rachel Vasquez

I was 15 and he was 16 when he moved to my town that was back in 1982.  High school sweethearts.  We got married that september 1985 after i graduated.  He left for work one night (usually we rode together but I had that night off)  less than an hour later my dad came knocking at my door to tell me Dave had been in a wreck.  only about 4 miles from our house, we stopped at the accident site and the state trooper was still there, he said they just left with him, he was banged up and bruised but he was fine.  When we arrived at the hospital a doctor came out to tell me he had bruised his brain and there really isnt any hope.  they air lifted him to a larger hospital about a 100 miles away.  9 days later a doctor came to tell us there was no brain activity.   Im 48 now got remarried and had 3 wonderful children, im even a grandma now, but I never have stopped loving him and he is always in my thoughts.   He really was the only true love I will ever have..I still go to the cemetary to talk with him and people do look at you like your crazy.  this song just brings all the pain back but sometimes you have to hurt to know your alive.  I truly hope there is a heaven and he is waiting on me there so I can find the part of me that died so long ago

IAM so sorry for your loss nothing can replace your true love

Tonya Richardson

That's so beautiful and so sad i couldnt stop the tears from falling reading this.

M N B Society

I'm so sorry 💔😔 That's heartbreaking. Your story is an inspiration MARY. And he was blessed to get to have someone love him as much you do & I'm sure he knows that & is waiting patiently for you on the other side. Like the song, "Waiting On A Woman" by Brad Paisley. I hope you've heard it or hear it. There are many meanings for the line "Waiting on a Woman" in that song ❤❤💕🥰
