I Should Have Watched That First Step

This song is by George Strait and appears on the album Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind (1984).

I once had a love, a true and lasting love,
But the fool in me came out one night.
And with her loving eyes she saw right through my lies,
And she changed the night I stepped across the line.

I should have watched that first step,
It was a mighty big step when I started steppin' out of line.
Though she's still lovin' me, it's not the way it used to be.
That first step did something to her mind.

I watched her slip away a little more every day,
And my conscience couldn't live with all that pain.
She's growing colder since the day I told her,
And the love we had will never be the same.

I should have watched that first step,
It was a mighty big step when I started steppin' out of line.
Though she's still lovin' me, it's not the way it used to be.
That first step did something to her mind,

That first step did something to her mind...
