I Wouldn't Go That Far
by Reba McEntire



I'll never forget that night long ago
When he drove me down that old dusty road
He took me as far as I'd ever been
He wanted me and I wanted him
But I'd always been told I shouldn't give in

[Chorus]
I wouldn't go that far
I didn't follow my heart
He said he loved me
But I wasn't ready
And I wouldn't go that far

He was so patient, he didn't give up
With a ring in his hand and a heart full of love
He asked me for forever, I asked him to wait
To please understand these dreams I must chase
Though it was a promise I wanted to make

[Chorus]

After all these years. I saw him again
He had his wife and his family with him
He said he was proud of all my success
He guessed both of us had found happiness

[Chorus]

Yes, I knew he loved me
But I wasn't ready
And I wouldn't go that far
