Connie Smith – Nobody But A Fool (Would Love You)Lyrics

Nobody but a fool would love you after the way you’ve done me
Broke every vow you made me broke every rule
Who’d lie awake all night cryin’ till you were out of sight
Loving you with all of her might nobody but a fool

I don’t know what it was that made me trust you like I did
Stars got in my eyes or either rocks got in my head
All I knew was your two lips kissed me heavenly
Till yesterday those tender lips kissed goodbye to me
Nobody but a fool would love you…

Well people tried to tell me how you’d hurt me I suppose
But I was blind as any bat and deaf as any post
You caught me like a tiger I loved you like a lamb
And knowing I still do just shows me up for what I am
Cause nobody but a fool would love…
