SHE TOUCHED YOU
(Jim Herd)
As recorded by The Fureys on "May We All Someday Meet Again" (2013)

You sung your songs the best you can, you've done what you must do,
And now you're feelin' tired and cold; the night is almost through.
When a young girl came and asked you to join her for a drink,
You never even stop to thinkó

That you don't even like the color of her hair,
You know you could never take to the crazy clothes she wears.
But she made you feel uneasy; you just stood there and stared,
For somewhere deep inside, she's touched you.

Now that you've had your drink, you take her hand and go.
You've six more towns to do this week; your money's running low.
And she knows that you're a trav'lin' man; you must be on your way,
So pretend you didn't hear her when she said you might stay.

For you don't even like the color of her hair,
You know you could never take to them crazy clothes she wears.
But she made you feel uneasy; you just stood there and stared,
For somewhere deep inside, she's touched you.

So many things that you must do, and places you must be,
A thousand reasons in this world why a singer must be free.
But something in them young girl's eyes are tryin' hard to say,
And for the first time in your life you think you might stay.

And maybe you'd grow to like the color of her hair,
You know you should never judge someone by the clothes they wear
She made you feel uneasy, you know her from somewhere,
So maybe you might stay and love her.
