"The Woman That Got Away" as written by and J. J. Cale....
Well, I've been out on
The street since yesterday
Been looking for
The woman that got away
A long-legged thing
With a red dress on
The kind of woman
You can't leave alone
Listen, if you see her,
Send her my way
Looking for the woman
That got away
The last time I seen her
She was looking good
I had a feeling
That she understood
She slipped through my fingers
In the middle of the night
I've gotta find my woman
And treat her right
Listen, if you see her,
Send her my way
Looking for the woman
That got away
If I ever get my hands
On that woman again
I'm gonna lock my door
And keep her in
She won't do no travelling,
Won't follow me 'round
I'm gonna keep my woman
And leave town
