"Guess Things Happen That Way" as written by and Jack Clement....
Well, you asked me if I'll forget my baby
I guess I will, someday
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way
You asked me if I'll get along
I guess I will, some way
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way

God gave me that girl to lean on
Then He put me on my own
Heaven, help me be a man and
Have the strength to stand alone
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way

You asked me if I'll miss her kisses
I guess I will, everyday
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way
You asked me if I'll find another
I don't know, I can't say
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way

God gave me that girl to lean on
Then He put me on my own
Heaven, help me be a man and
Have the strength to stand alone
I don't like it, but I guess things happen that way

    General CommentIt's about a guy who is with a girl and she dies (god gave me that girl to lean on,then he put me on my own) and it's about his fealings about being alone and wifeless.

    General CommentSeeing his religious nature, it could be about a gf who dies young and how he feels being alone, but seeing as he is also a womenising hard rocking pirate it could also be the gf left him and the feelings of being alone:-)

    General Commenti love the da doop a doo parts of this song
    it makes me happy ever time i hear it
    it shows how J.C. could say F.U. to the man while
    still retaining main stream sounds
