Devin Dawson – He Loved Her Lyrics

He Loved Her Lyrics – Devin Dawson

People like to talk about
What they’re gonna leave behind
And how they’re gonna change the world
What’s gonna define their life
I guess I set my sights on a
Different kind of legacy
Yeah, I’ll know I got it right
If all they say about me is:

He had a dog, he drank a beer
He drove the same truck fifteen years
He built a house up on some dirt
He wore his first name on his shirt
He said a prayer, got up at dawn
Showed up to cheer the home team on
He earned his keep and kept his word
He lived his life and he loved her

(Yeah he did)

So don’t you go and spend a dime on one of those high priced stones
If you wanna celebrate my life let me tell ya what would really mean the most
Circle up on Friday night with all the ones that know me well
Raise a glass and tip it back and say his life like anyone else

He had a dog, he drank a beer
He drove the same truck fifteen years
He built a house up on some dirt
He wore his first name on his shirt
He said a prayer, got up at dawn
Showed up to cheer the home team on
He earned his keep and kept his word
He lived his life and he loved her

(Yes, he did
Make it dance now, come on)

He went to work and paid the bills
On Saturdays he mowed the lawn
Just a small town, simple man who lived his life like a country song

He had a dog, he drank a beer
He drove the same truck fifteen years
He built a house up on some dirt
He wore his first name on his shirt
He said a prayer, got up at dawn
Showed up to cheer the home team on
He earned his keep and kept his word
He lived his life and he loved her
And he loved her

Ooh, I guess he set his sights on a
Different kind of legacy
Yes, he did
