Sounds Better In The Song 
By The Drive-by Truckers

Chords are same throughout song

       F                                G                                     Am
When I saw her standing there, with her bright eyes and shining hair, she was looking back at me
F                       G                                      Am 
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk and some aren't meant to say a thing
             F                            G                            Am
But when she opened up her mouth and that sweet voice came out, I lost track of my own name
          F                                      G                          Am    
Now she's found herself, and I lost mine and I'm just another guy who can't give her anything


Well the drifter, He holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank
And Lord knows, I can't change sounds better in the song than it does with hell to pay
I might as well of slipped that ring on her finger from a window of a van as it drove away
Now she's found herself, and I lost mine and I'm just another guy who can't give her anything

Dreams are given to you when you're young enough to dream them before they can do you any harm
They don't start to hurt unless you try to hold on to them after seeing how they really are
She used to dream them with me, every single crazy one, 
'til they started hurting her too, now she's got some of her own 
And outgrowing me might be the best thing for her she has ever done


A light that shines as bright as hers can't be kept in the shadows for too long
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give can't just sit at home alone
Lord, she's gave me everything and never wanted anything I couldn't give, Just what was inside of me. 
And now she's found herself, and I lost mine and I'm just another guy who can't give her anything.
