      Bb                            Eb                            Bb
Her folks should'a seen it comin' - it was only just a matter of time
              Eb                         Eb
Plenty old e-nough - and you can't stop love

                  Eb                           Bb
That was all she wrote - her mama's heart was broke
                  Eb                   Bb
That was all she wrote - so the story goes

Now don't you wonder what the preacher's gonna preach about Sunday mornin'
                    Eb                        Bb
Nothin' quite like this has happened here be-fore
              Bb                        Eb                     Bb 
Welllllll he must have been a looker - smooth talkin' son of a gun
                     Eb                   Bb  
For such a grounded girl - to just up and run
                        Bb                        Bb
