"She Couldn't Change Me" as written by and Christopher David/nicholson Knight....
Sometimes I think what turned her on was my ole' broke down boots
She wanted her a real cowboy, it was a phase she was going through
Not one week after she moved in and I caught her paintin' the bedroom blue
Brought home a bottle of pink Chablis, poured out my best home-brew
I was sittin' on the porch in my over-alls as she packed her things to leave
She changed her mind when she couldn't change me

She changed direction, headed out West
She changed her tune to some Hip-Hop mess
Her dark brown hair went to blonde and her pretty blue eyes went to green
She changed everything when she couldn't change me

She was sittin' beside the ocean, lookin' out at the waves
Watchin' how they keep on rollin'
But always seemed the same
She called and said she'd been thinkin' about all those quiet country nights
And whatever she thought was so wrong with me
Suddenly seemed alright
I was sittin' on the porch in my over-alls when her truck pulled into view
She said I changed my mind when I couldn't change you

She changed direction, headed back home
She changed her tune, it's all Haggard and Jones
Had her dark brown hair pulled back and the bluest eyes you ever seen
She changed everything when she couldn't change me

She said I guess when you love someone, you just gotta let it be
She changed her mind when she couldn't change me

She changed direction, she's back in my arms
She thought it through, had a change of heart
She said I guess when you love someone, you just gotta let it be
She changed her mind when she couldn't change me

Yeah
Yeah
She changed it all when she couldn't change me

She couldn't change me
She couldn't change me

    General CommentThis song makes me angry. He won't change anything for her, so she changes everything for him. Granted she changes after they get together. But he's not willing to budge an inch, so she changes everything about herself. I just think there should have been a few compromises.
