What Did She Ever See In Me?

Liner Notes: 

Don't judge this song by the picture!!

Haha! That is the perfect picture for this song.

Anyway, when I'm not doing country, I like to dabble in the jazz genre. I still want to be a Beach Boy when I grow up and they are pretty jazzy.

This came out pretty well, I think--and I hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics: 

WHAT DID SHE EVER SEE IN ME?

Words & Music
By
Jerry Pettit

We met when I was so down.
I was out of my mind,
She was out on the town.
I was alone at the bar,
She came up, said, "How are
You? Sure looks like you could use a friend."
And I thought, "Don't let this moment end."

CHORUS:
WHAT DID SHE EVER SEE IN ME?
I'm not half the man that I should be.
She saw past my flaws,
Guess she loves me because
I love her, she'd be blind not to see.
Why does she want to be by my side?
Lord knows she'd do better if she tried.
Who knows what she dreams of,
But she gives all her love
To me, and she seems satisfied.

It took me a while to adjust.
Haven't always been one
That the ladies could trust.
It was different with her,
She just knew that we were
Meant to be with each other for life.
And I thought, "I should make her my wife."

CHORUS:
WHAT DID SHE EVER SEE IN ME?
I'm not half the man that I should be.
She saw past my flaws,
Guess she loves me because
I love her, she'd be blind not to see.
Why does she want to be by my side?
Lord knows she'd do better if she tried.
Who knows what she dreams of,
But she gives all her love
To me, and she seems satisfied.

FLUTE SOLO

It's been years, she's in love with me still,
And I've loved her back,
And of course always will,
'Cuz she found me half-formed,
Pulled me in from the storm,
I'm amazed she's not had second thoughts.
I know I'm blessed with all that I've got.

CHORUS:
WHAT DID SHE EVER SEE IN ME?
I'm not half the man that I should be.
She saw past my flaws,
Guess she loves me because
I love her, she'd be blind not to see.
Why does she want to be by my side?
Lord knows she'd do better if she tried.
Who knows what she dreams of,
But she gives all her love
To me, and she seems satisfied.
