Jody Stecher - Amanda

I've held it all inward, Lord knows I've tried.
It's an awful awakening in a country boy's life.
To look in the mirror in total surprise,
At the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes.

Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

Well, a measure of people don't understand,
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band.
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen,
Now I'm crowding thirty and still wearing jeans.

Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life,
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
