Gary Allan – Her Man Lyrics

I’m gonna change my ways of doing things around here
Well, I’m turning over a new leaf, gonna get my self in gear
Because I’ve got a woman who’s better than most
And I’ve made a mess of her plans
Starting today, all I’m gonna be is her man

[Chorus]
Because I’ve been a wild catter, and a go-go getter
Been an S.O.B. right down to the letter
I’ve had misadventures, I’ve even got pictures
I’m even more than I can stand
But startin’ today, all I’m going be is her man

[Verse 2]
I’m gonna give it all back ’cause all I’ve done is take
Well I’ve put her on the back burner while I was out on the make
But I’ve got a woman who’s good enough
To give me a second chance again
And startin’ today, all I’m gonna be is her man

[Chorus]
Because I’ve been a wild catter, and a go-go getter
Been an S.O.B. right down to the letter
I’ve had misadventures, I’ve even got pictures
I’m even more than I can stand
Startin’ today, all I’m going be is her man

[Outro]
I’m a little bit late but I’m wising up
Now I’m taking her by the hand
And startin’ today, all I’m going to be is her man
