She Only Meant to Use Him Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

She was young and she was pretty
And she met him in the city
And somehow he fit right into her plan

She knew she'd hit it lucky
He owned half of Kentucky and best of all
He was a sixty year old man

She let him think he'd caught her
She led him to the alter
Totin' seven carats on her hand

All dressed up in satin
Oh, the good Lord wasted that one
But she knew she'd be the winner in the end

'Cause she only meant to use him
She only meant to use him
And she didn't care if what she did was wrong

She only meant to use him
And she knew what she was doin'
In a few years she'd be rich and he'd be gone

In their million dollar palace
The man grew old and jealous
And he never let her leave the house alone

She was in her prime and holdin'
She knew that he was old
And chances were he wouldn't be around that long

As the days and nights grew longer
The greed in her grew stronger
And it even crossed her mind to take his life

But he found out he'd been taken
And his pride was badly shaken
And he knew she never meant to be a wife

And she only meant to use him
She only meant to use him
But she knew just what she wanted in the end

She only meant to use him
But he knew what she was doin'
And he swore she'd never have a dime to spend

Tormented by frustration
She watched her beauty wastin'
As the lines upon her face began to show

She turned to heavy drinkin'
'Cause her ship was slowly sinkin'
And the bottle was the only place to go

Now 20 odd years later
The headlines in the paper
Said they laid her soul to rest at 53

And when they wheeled him to her coffin
He took her diamond off
And he just smiled and finally died at 93

Yes, she only meant to use him
Lord knows she meant to use him
But she died with seven carats on her hand

All dressed up in satin
Oh, the good Lord wasted that one
But her husband died a satisfied old man

Yes, she was young and she was pretty
And she met him in the city
And somehow he fit right into her plan

She knew she'd hit it lucky
He owned half of Kentucky and best of all
He was a sixty year old man
