My archer woman
She shot me down
Straight through the heart
And left me brown

Don't let her see
She won't get the best of me

My archer woman
She can be so sweet
Her clean eyes
And little feet

Don't let her see
She won't get the best of me

Don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
Don't even tell her that I died

My archer woman's
Got a really big brain
A pretty face
And a whole lot of pain

Don't let her see
That she got the best of me

My archer woman's
Got a really good plan
Her mama made her strong
She don't need a man

Oh, don't let her see
That she got the best of me

Don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
Don't even tell her that I died

And if she comes around
Tell her that I went to sea
And that she never got the best
Never got the best of me
And please don't let her know

Oh, don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
Don't let her see me cry
You can tell her that I died

My archer woman at 23
Wasted a year drinking with me
Oh, don't let her see
Don't let her see

'Cause my archer woman's got a broken heart
Tried to jump it but it wouldn't start
And if she'd see, give the very best of me
Oh, if she'd see, give the very best of me

    General CommentI love this song! Found it on a video by Anberlin, haha. That last part, though, is wrong I must admit :(

    "Tried to jump it, but it would not start
    and if she'd see, give the very best of me
    oh, if she'd see, she could have the best of me."

    Also it is missing after "And please don't let her know"
    "how I love her so"
