She Gives Me Love

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

I know she's not as pretty as you
Her hair's not wavy or her eyes so blue
but she gives me one thing
you don't never do
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love

You know in a world like this
that's a pretty hard thing to do
I guess that's why I stay by her
though she may not be as fine as you
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love

I know she can't compare with you
She don't even know me as well as you do
But she knows what I need
and she does come through
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love

You know in a world like this
that's a pretty hard thing to find
So I guess I'm gonna stick by her
and leave the rest behind
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love

I know she's not as pretty as you
Her hair's not golden and her eyes aren't blue
but she does one thing
you don't ever do
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love

You know that the world outside
can be a pretty cold place to be
She knows how to keep warm
and that means a lot to me
She gives me love
Ah, she gives me love
She gives me love
