Don Williams – I’ve Got A Winner In You Lyrics

I oughta know, what it’s like to loose at love
I’ve done it enough and I oughta know
But then you came my way
And tore away, the fear of pain
I won’t loose again, this time I know

I’ve got a winner in you
No way I can loose
A love I can hold on to
I’ve got a winner in you

I know how it feels, when you try and try again
And then you never win, I know how it feels
Oh but this time around
I’ve finally found what it’s all about
They write songs about, the way that I feel

I’ve got a winner in you
No way I can loose
A love I can hold on to
I’ve got a winner in you

I’ve got a winner in you
No way I can loose
A love I can hold on to
I’ve got a winner in you
