    SHE WAS     Mark Chesnutt

A#       G#                       A#
   She started her new life ten dollars in debt
       D#                   G#          A# 
That's all it took to get started back then
   G#                        D#     
A trip to the court house a-cross the state line
A#  
No one could stop her she'd made up her mind
          G#             A#
He was eighteen and she wasn't  But she said  
    D#                                  G#                 A#
She Was  Never thought twice Came back home as my daddy's wife
                    D#                   Cm
She just shook her head  When her momma said
                      G#   A#           D#  D# G#     
Are you sure he's the one      and she was
A#           G#         A# 
   He took a job and farmed on the side
    D#                         G#        A#
He made the ends meet But she kept them tied
G#                       D# 
Changes were coming to their little world
          A#
She said what would you like a boy or a girl
         G#      A#                  D# 
He said are you?    And she said She was Never thought twice
           G#                           A# 
'bout the next step and building their lives
                 D#                    Cm 
Soon there were three and she tried to be
              G# A#           D# 
Everything to us      and she was
G#                       A#   
Those precious moments turned into years
             D#                       G#
And in what seemed like a blink of an eye
G#                    D#
I held her hand as I leaned down to ask her
G#                              A#
Momma are you ready to say good-bye She said 
    D#     
She was But she thought twice
            G#                   A#
Holding my hand as she let go of life
              D#               Cm                        G# 
Daddy always said a women like her would be hard to give up
        Cm                       G#          D#        A#       D#
And she was (she was)  If there ever was a picture of love  She Was
