He'd Never Seen Julie Cry Lyrics

by Jo Dee Messina

His heart was tougher than a piece of leather
Had a will carved out of stone
He was stallion who had thrown every rider
No woman could seem to hang on

He had always been a fortress
With walls too high to climb
But then again he'd never seen Julie cry

He wasn't lookin' for a woman
He was racin' with the wind
But he kinda took to Julie
'Cause she kept up with him

Thought he'd out run her like the others
Leave her somewhere down the line
But then again, he'd never seen Julie cry

He never thought that love would hit him
Like a train comin' out of the dark
He never thought a friend would hand him
The keys to his own heart

He was like a ragin' river
One that's just too rough to ride
But then again, he'd never seen Julie cry
But then again, he'd never seen Julie cry

Oh, how he wanted just to hold her
And wipe away her tears
But she turned him a cold shoulder
Said, I've tried lovin' you for years

He didn't know that it was over
He thought, he could make it right
But then again, he'd never seen Julie cry

He never thought that love would hit him
Like a train comin' out of the dark
He never thought a friend would hand him back
The keys to his own heart

He was like a ragin' river
Oh, one that's just too rough to ride
But then again, he'd never seen Julie cry
Oh but then again, he'd never seen Julie cry
Until then, he'd never seen Julie cry
