"Probably Wouldn't Be This Way" as written by John Davis Kennedy and Tammi Lynn Kidd....
Got a date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
Everybody says he's crazy; I'll have to see

I finally moved to Jackson when the summer came
I won't have to pay that boy to rake my leaves

I'm probably going on and on
It seems I'm doing more of that these days

I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh, you left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes it's like I'm losing touch
Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I never see your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

Mama says that I just shouldn't speak to you
Susan says that I should just move on

You ought to see the way these people look at me
When they see me 'round here talking to this stone

Everybody thinks I've lost my mind
But I just take it day by day

I probably wouldn't be this way
I probably wouldn't hurt so bad
I never pictured every minute without you in it
Oh, you left so fast
Sometimes I see you standing there
Sometimes I feel an angel's touch
Sometimes I feel that I'm so lucky to have had the chance to love this much
God gave me a moment's grace
'Cause if I never see your face
I probably wouldn't be this way

I probably wouldn't be this way

Got a date a week from Friday with a preacher's son
Everybody says I'm crazy
Guess I'll have to see

    General CommentWhen sumonomen said they thought it was about the death of her husband, I disagreed at first. I kinda thought it was more about her husband leaving her, rather than dying. The more I listen to the song though, I think it is about not being able to move on after losing a spouse. Everyone thinks she's crazy for not being able to get over his death. The line that says, "momma says that I just shouldn't talk to you." confused me at first, and made me think it was about a relationship dying. But the line that says something about her talking to "this stone" makes me think it's his grave, and she's been talking to it, because it's the closest thing to talking to him himself. Nice song, makes me kinda sad though.
