Lyric She s Got A Mind Of Her Own


(Billy Livsey/Don Schlitz)

She was nine years old when I first met her
She didn t dress like anyone
When she ran in a race the boys couldn t catch her
I stood back and let her run
I used to walk her home after school
Every chance that I could
I d say to her "you re not like the other girls"
And she d say "good"

She s got a mind of her own
She don t care what they say
They can tell her she won t
But she will anyway
She s got a mind of her own
But her heart belongs to me

The world turned and ten years later
I was playin in a band
She was chasin an education
College boys beggin for her hand
I used to call her late at night
Every chance that I could
I d say to her "I can t get you out of my mind"
And she d say "good"

She s got a mind of her own
She don t care what they say
They can tell her she won t
But she will anyway
She s got a mind of her own
But her heart belongs to me

Here we are, a few turns later
She still don t dress like anyone
People say she s got no limits
I stand back and let her run
But when the lights go out at night
What we re feelin is understood
I d say to her "you re not like the other girls"
And she d say "good"

She s got a mind of her own
She don t care what they say
They can tell her she won t
But she will anyway
She s got a mind of her own
But her heart belongs to me
