I met her down in Tampa Bay
Spring Break '88
She came in to hear my band play
And man, we were on that night
Twin guitars and twenty minute jams
Tush, Cocaine, Sweet Home Alabama
I knew I had her in the palm of my hand
When I stepped in the spotlight
Hot and heavy in that little alley
On a fifteen minute break
We shared a cigarette, a long kiss
Then she stood there by the stage
All night by the stage
Man, what can I say
She loved me
After five long years of tryin to be a star
I sold my axe and I quit them bars
Got a real job fixin trucks and cars
Had a couple new mouths to feed
But eventually that monthly wage
And the finer points of the suburban age
All became bars on a cage
And man it was killin me
I started cussin, gettin mad at nothin
And blamin her for ruinin my life
Started sinkin, cheatin, and-a drinkin
But she stood there by my side
Right there by my side
With tears in her eyes
And she loved me
She loved me
Heaven knows the reasons why
I'll never know the reasons why
She loved me
She finally left three years ago
Married a man out in New Mexico
Calls to say the boys are really growin
God, I miss them kids
As for me, I'm twelve steps down the line
I found a church that I like just fine
I even got a gig playin these songs of mine
They all just reminisce
Hot and heavy in that little alley
On a fifteen minute break
We shared a cigarette, a long kiss
Then she stood there by the stage
All night by the stage
Man, those were the days
When she loved me
She loved me
Heaven knows the reasons why
I'll never know the reasons why
She loved me
Yeah, she loved me
Heaven knows the reasons why
I'll never know the reasons why
She loved me
