Amanda

Amanda
(Bob McDill)
I've held it all inward, the Lord knows I've tried
It's an awful awakening in a country boy's life
To look in the mirror in total surprise
At the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes

   Amanda, light of my life, fate should have made you a gentleman's wife
   Amanda, light of my life, fate should have made you a gentleman's wife

There's a measure of people that don't understand
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band
I got my first guitar when I was sixteen
Now I'm pushing (pulling) thirty and still wearing jeans
note: First heard this from Ringer and McCaslin, then again from
     Jody Stecher and various friends.  Nice tune. JN
Recorded by Waylon Jennings
