Tammy Wynette – He Was There (When I Needed You) Lyrics

I never thought I’d let another touch me
After all the love I had for you
But I could stay alone just so long
And I got so lonely with you gone

Sometimes when I’m loving him I call your name
He pretends not to hear it but he has to
As time goes by he’s making me forget the pain
I’ll be all right but I’ll never be the same

Chorus:
He was there when I needed you
Doing all the things you used to do
He’s made me smile again, he’s not you but then
He was there when I needed you

Don’t get me wrong, there’s days you’re all I think about
You won’t be back, I have to face the truth
When you left your love I couldn’t live without
And he was there when I needed you
