That Kind


She was only seventeen and was ev’ry young boy’s dream,
the blue-eyed beauty queen of the day.
Broke some hearts, including mine.
But ev’ryone knew
she was just that kind.

Seems like all her dreams were spent
on the boys that came and went.
And the promises were all they left behind.
She was good and she was mine.
But ev’ryone knew
she was just that kind.

Hey, they say, they’re gonna take her out to Hollywood,
gonna make her like a movie star,
maybe put her in a picture show.
Took her chance.
She paid her dime.
And maybe I loved her
’cause she was that kind.

She was gone by twenty-one
when most lives had just begun.
There was so much left undone along the way.
She took her chance.
She paid her dime.
Oh, you gotta be strong
to be that kind.

Yeah, they said,
“We’re gonna take you out to Hollywood.
We’re gonna make you like a movie star.
We’re gonna put you in a picture show.”
Wasted life
and a waste of time.
But I couldn’t have loved her
If she wasn’t that kind.
No, I couldn’t have loved her
if she wasn’t that kind.
