Amanda

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album The High Priest of Country Music (1975).

I've held it all inward, Lord knows I've tried
It's an awful awakenin' in a country boy's life
To look in the mirror in total surprise
At the hair on your shoulders and the age in your eyes.

Amanda light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentle man's wife
Amanda light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentle man's wife.

Well, the measure of people don't understand
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen
Now I'm crowding thirty and still wearin' jeans.

Amanda light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentle man's wife
Amanda light of my life
Fate should have made you a gentle man's wife...
