MP3 File

Well I never went to college, babe
I did not have the luck
Rolled out of Indiana in the back of a pickup truck
With no education higher
Than the street of my hometown
I went lookin' for a fire
Just to burn it all down 

You've got a real fine love
You've got a real fine love
One I am unworthy of
You've got a real fine love, baby 

I thought I had a line on something
Maybe no one else could say
And they couldn't find it in their hearts
To just get out of my way
Then out of nowhere, and from nothing
You came into my life
I'd seen an angel or two before
But I'd never asked one to be my wife 

You've got a real fine love
You've got a real fine love
One I am unworthy of
You've got a real fine love, baby 

Well you can sprinkle all your teardrops
Across the evening sky
But you cannot hide the twinkle
Of starlight in your eye
Well I left my map way back there, baby
I don't know where we are
But I'm gonna pull my pony up
And hitch my wagon to your start 

You've got a real fine love
You've got a real fine love
One I am unworthy of
You've got a real fine love, baby 

Well now the babies are all sleeping
And the twilight's givin' in
She looks like you, he looks like her
And we all look like him
Well maybe it's just the little thing
The way I feel tonight
A little joy
A little peace 
And a whole lot of light

CHORUS TWICE
