Willie Nelson & Julio Iglesias – To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before Lyrics Lyrics
To all the girls I’ve loved before
Who traveled in and out my door
I’m glad they came along
I dedicate this song
To all the girls I’ve loved before

To all the girls I once caressed
And may I say I’ve held the best
For helping me to grow
I owe a lot I know
To all the girls I’ve loved before

The winds of change are always blowing
And every time I try to stay
The winds of change continue blowing
And they just carry me away

To all the girls who shared my life
Who now are someone else’s wives
I’m glad they came along
I dedicate this song
To all the girls I’ve loved before

To all the girls who cared for me
Who filled my nights with ecstasy
They live within my heart
I’ll always be a part
Of all the girls I’ve loved before
The winds of change are always blowing
And every time I try to stay
The winds of change continue blowing
And they just carry me away

To all the girls we’ve loved before
Who travelled in and out our doors
We’re glad they came along
We dedicate this song
To all the girls we’ve loved before

To all the girls we’ve loved before
Who travelled in and out our doors
We’re glad they came along
We dedicate this song
To all the girls we’ve loved before…
