Description
Yeah - the title's been done before. This is an OLD lyric from long, long ago when I found myself dating someone NOT KNOWING that there was already an S.O. in her world. Boy, was I bummed. Back to my Country roots with this one!

Lyrics
Oh, I love her like I’ve never loved
And I love to hold her close at night
She’s a sweet thing; I can’t get enough.
But the love I feel just isn’t right.

It’s an old theme for a country song.
One I never used to understand.
But now it seems, Lord, I can sing along
‘Cause it looks like I’m “the other man.”

CHORUS:
How was I to know she couldn’t be mine when I took her by the hand?
Lord, if I could move the hands of time, I wouldn’t be “the other man.”
But every time I look in- to those eyes.
I want her in my arms a- gain.
It didn’t take me long to realize: it looks like I’m “the other man.”

Had I known it from the very start
I would never have to feel this way.
Well, you know, Lord, that she took my heart,
But I’ve got to try and stay a- way.

(CHORUS)

Nice track David
Good lyrics, excellent vocals on the traditional country style. You said this is from a long time ago, and it sounds very good, but I'd love to hear an updated version of it with a little more of the band in the mix.

Great song, sounds good to me David,

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
