Dixie Chicks – There’s Your Trouble Lyrics

Should Have Been Different But
It Wasn’t Different, Was It
Same Old Story, Dear John, And So Long
Should Have Fit Like A Glove
Should Have Fit Like A Ring
Like A Diamond Ring
A Token Of True Love
Should Have All Worked Out
But It Didn’t
She Should Be Here Now
But She Isn’t

[Chorus:]
There’s Your Trouble, There’s Your Trouble
You Keep Seeing Double With The Wrong One
You Can’t See I Love You, You Can’t See She Doesn’t
But You Just Keep Holding On
There’s Your Trouble

So Now You’re Thinking ‘Bout
All You’re Missing — How
Deep You’re Sinking, Round And Round And Dragging Down
Why Don’t You Cash In Your Chips
Why Don’t You Call It A Loss
Not Such A Big Loss, Chalk It Up to better luck
Could Have Been True Love
But It Wasn’t
It Should All Add Up
But It Doesn’t

[Repeat Chorus]

Should Have All Worked Out
But It Didn’t
She Should Be Here Now
But She Isn’t

[Repeat Chorus]
