"NOTHING SURE LOOKED
GOOD ON YOU"
by: gene watson
songwriter: Jim Rushing

You found your greener pastures
In a mansion on the hill
With a flashy foreign car to drive
And lots of time to kill.

Now my mind keeps on remembering
The days of me and you
But when we were down to nothing,
Nothin' 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 in life he lured you
And you could not refuse
But when we were down to nothin',
Nothin' sure looked so good on you.

--- Instrumental ---

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 dreamin',
Now your dreams can all come true
But when we were down to nothin',
Nothin' 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 in life he lured you
And you could not refuse
But when we were down to nothin',
Nothin' sure looked so good on you.

Yes,when we were down to nothin',
Nothin' sure looked so good on you...
