Conway Twitty – We Had It All Lyrics

I can hear the wind blowin’ in my mind.
Just the way it used to sound through the Georgia pines.
And you were there to answer when I called.
You and me lord knows we had it all.

Remember how I used to touch your hair?
While reaching for the feelin’ that was always there.
You were the best thing in my life I can recall.
You and me Lord, knows we had it all.

I know that we can never live those times again.
So I let these dreams take me back where we’ve been.
And I stay there with you just as long as I can.
Oh, it was so good (it was so good).
Oh it was so good (so good).
Oh it was so good when I was your man.

I’ll never stop believin’ in your smile.
And even though you didn’t stay it was all worth while.
You were the best thing in my life I can recall.
You and me Lord knows we had it all.

Yeah, You and me Lord knows we had it all…
