Johnny Cash - Guess Things Happen That Way

 

Well you ask me if I'll forget my baby.

I guess I will, someday.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.

You ask me if I'll get along.

I guess I will, someway.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.

 

God gave me that girl to lean on, 

then he put me on my own.

Heaven help me be a man

and have the strength to stand alone.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.

 

You ask me if I'll miss her kisses.

I guess I will, everyday.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.

You ask me if I'll find another.

I don't know. I can't say.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.

 

God gave me that girl to lean on,

then he put me on my own.

Heaven help me be a man

and have the strength to stand alone.

I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.
