Nothing Sure Looked Good On You Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

You found your greener pastures in a mansion on a hill
with a flashy foreign car to drive and lots of time to kill,
but my mind goes on remembering the days of me and you,
when we were down to nothing, nothing sure looked good on you.

You said you needed simple things that I had plenty of
and through the days of dark and lean, we could always live on love.
With his style of life he lured you, and you could not refuse,
but when we were down to nothing, nothing sure looked good on you.

When you honeymooned in Paris, it was carried on the news.
And I heard you laughed your cares away on a Caribbean cruise.
You were always one for dreaming, now you're dreams can all come true,
but when we were down to nothing, nothing sure looked good on you.

You said you needed simple things that I had plenty of,
and through the days of dark and lean, we could always live on love.
With his style of life, he lured you, and you could not refuse,
but when we were down to nothing, nothing sure looked good on you.

Yes, when we were down to nothing, nothing sure looked good on you.
