For Better For Worse (Old Man Markley)

For better, for worse Love's a blessing, love's a curse She's an angel, I'm just a man I'll always love her 'til I can't stand [X2] Well, I met her on a Sunday, she was standing in the sun I picked up some wild roses, asked her "could I be the one?" She smiled and took my hand, an angel's vision standing there She kissed me on the cheeks and threw my roses in the air For better, for worse Love's a blessing, love's a curse She's an angel, I'm just a man I'll always love her 'til I can't stand April showers brought the mud, puddles littered under foot I threw down my brand new jacket, didn't want it messing up her looks She jumped across that puddle, picked up my dirty coat She tossed it in the garbage and my heart sank in that moat For better, for worse Love's a blessing, love's a curse She's an angel, I'm just a man I'll always love her 'til I can't stand And now the trees turn shades of blood as the days were getting short Wished I could have kissed you baby, sitting swinging on the porch But you blew me off completely, no matter how I tried I didn't want to face it but I knew the truth inside For better, for worse Love's a blessing, love's a curse She's an angel, I'm just a man I'll always love her 'til I can't stand My winter coat was red (like the color of her dress) Now I held her one last time (then I laid her down to rest) Well, I gave her every chance (well, she should have realized) That's why they had me locked away, that's why she had to die For better, for worse Love's a blessing, love's a curse She's an angel, I'm just a man I'll always love her 'til I can't stand I always loved her but she had a man
