Let You Get Away

(Doc Hodges)
May 10, 2011

Baby we’ve been friends for a good long time

And lovin’ you that way never crossed my mind

But I saw you with your new love today

And I wondered how I let you get away

 

Well I’ve run the race of time with you

Held on to you for an hour or two

Been there when the day was through and more

And now I find I’m walkin’ the floor

 

You held me when times were tough

Behind blue eyes you saw enough

And I never felt nothin’ like this love before

 

And I wondered how I let you get away

When I saw you with your new love today

Oh, I should be the guy

Standin’ by your side

Oh, I wonder how I let you get away

 

And I wondered how I let you get away

When I saw you with your new love today

If I could do it all again

I would be more than your friend

Oh, I wonder how I let you get away

 

And I wondered how I let you get away

When I saw you with your new love today

Oh, I should be the guy

Standin’ by your side

Oh, I wonder how I let you get away
