You Never Can Tell

I spent several days thinking of the ways I'd say we're through
But when I let you go I didn't know that I still cared for you
But last Saturday night beneath the barroom lights I saw you out with him
And in a matter of time I changed my mind I wanted you back again

Who'd a thought that I'd be feeling sorry
I'd have guessed that I'd be doing well
Well I saw you and my piece of mind went to pieces
It goes to show with love you never can tell

Well I did not go to the rodeo but I heard you were there
Now the talk of the town is the love you found they say you're quite a pair
I thought wait and see you'll be back with me it's just a matter of time
But something's changed they say you've got a different way of smiling since you were mine

Who'd a thought that I'd be feeling sorry
I'd have guessed that I'd be doing well
Well I saw you and my piece of mind went to pieces
It goes to show with love you never can tell

Now it's lonely nights and neon light every day's just the same
Since a church room crowd gathered around to hear you change your name
So I sit and drink and sometimes think about getting out of town
But I never go 'cause you know she just might come back around

Who'd a thought that I'd be feeling sorry
I'd have guessed that I'd be doing well
Well I saw you and my piece of mind went to pieces
It goes to show with love you never can tell
