Liza Lou

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

I loved a pretty lady once, her name was Liza Lou
I did my best to win her, but there's nothing I could do
I swam the deepest ocean, like it says to in the song
All the way and back again, I must have done it wrong

Liza Lou, oh Liza Lou, I'd do anything for you
Liza, oh sweet Liza Lou, nothing I wouldn't do

I climbed the highest mountain, yes, in fact I did it twice
Afterwards you know I fought my way through fire and ice
I tried out the impossible, now I don't like to brag
But if difficult would do it, well I had it in the bag

What can I say, you slipped away, like summer fades to fall
Like autumn does to moonlight over blue light silver wall
Some say it's not how hard you try, how hot or bright the fire
Not how high you dare to fly, or what depths you do aspire

Liza Lou, oh Liza Lou, I'd do anything for you
Liza, oh sweet Liza Lou, nothing I wouldn't do
Liza Lou, oh Liza Lou, I'd do anything for you
Liza, oh sweet Liza Lou, nothing I wouldn't do

If she loves the way I love her, what remains to prove
If that doesn't win her heart, it could be time to move
I loved a pretty lady once, her name was Liza Lou
I did my best to win her, but there's nothing I could do
I did my best to win her, but there's nothing I could do
