"She Let Herself Go" as written by Kerry Kurt Phillips and Dean Dillon....
He wondered how she'd take it when he said goodbye
Thought she might do some cryin' lose some sleep at night
But he had no idea, when he hit the road
That without him in her life, she'd let herself go

[Chorus]
Let herself go on a singles cruise
To Vegas once, then to Honolulu
Let herself go to New York City
A week at the Spa, came back knocked-out pretty
When he said he didn't love her no more
She let herself go

She poured her heart an' soul into their three-bedroom ranch
Spent her days raisin' babies, ironin' his pants
Came home one day from the grocery store and found his note
And without him there to stop her, she let herself go

Let herself go on her first blind-date
Had the time of her life with some friends at the lake
Let herself go, buy a brand new car
Drove down to the beach he always said was too far
Sand sure felt good between her toes

[Chorus]

To Vegas once
Honolulu, New York City
Came back knocked-out pretty

    General Commentomg i love this song so much!! you think it's going to be your typical sad country song, where she gets all pathetic, and lets her self go to looking like crap, but then it turns out so sweet!

    General CommentI absolutely love this song!
    It's about a woman letting herself let go of a man who doesn't appreciate her.
    So she "lets herself go" and does all the things he wouldn't do with her.
    The beat is awesome and Strait's voice complements it well.
