Nothing Sure Looked Good on You

Song Author Jim Rushing Performer: Gene Watson Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]You found your greener pastures in a [C]mansion on a hill
With a [G]flashy foreign car to drive and [C]lots of time to [D7]kill   
[G]Lord my mind keeps on remembering the [G7]days of me and [C]you  
When we were [D7]down to [G]nothing [C]nothing [G]sure looked [D7]good on [G]you  

[C]You said you needed [D7]simple things [C]that I had plenty [G]of  
And [C]through the days of [G]dark and rain we [C]could always live on [D7]love   
[G]With his style of life he lured you and [G7]you could not [C]refuse
But when we were [D7]down to [G]nothing [C]nothing [G]sure looked [D7]good on [G]you  

When you honeymooned in Paris it was [C]carried on the news
And I [G]heard you laughed your cares away on a [C]Caribbean [D7]cruise
[G]You were always one for dreaming now your [G7]dreams can all come [C]true
But when we were [D7]down to [G]nothing [C]nothing [G]sure looked [D7]good on [G]you  

[C]You said you needed [D7]simple things [C]that I had plenty [G]of  
And [C]through the days of [G]dark and rain we [C]could always live on [D7]love   
[G]With his style of life he lured you and [G7]you could not [C]refuse
But when we were [D7]down to [G]nothing [C]nothing [G]sure looked [D7]good on [G]you  

[C]Yes when we were [D7]down to [G]nothing [C]nothing [G]sure looked [D7]good on [G]you  


You found your greener pastures in a mansion on a hill
With a flashy foreign car to drive and lots of time to kill
Lord my mind keeps 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 rain 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 your 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 rain 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
