Ricky Van Shelton – Life Turned Her That Way Lyrics

 

If she seems cold and bitter, then I beg of you

Just stop and consider all she’s gone through

Don’t be quick to condemn her for things she might say

Just remember, life turned her that way

 

She’s been walked on and stepped on so many times

And I hate to admit it, but the last footprint’s mine

She was crying when I met her, she cries harder today

So don’t blame her, life turned her that way

 

She’s been walked on and stepped on so many times

And I hate to admit it, but the last footprint’s mine

She was crying when I met her, she cries harder today

So don’t blame her, life turned her that way

So don’t blame her, life turned her that way
