"You Beat All I Ever Saw" lyrics - JOHNNY CASH

"You Beat All I Ever Saw"

I've walked though every town
Saw fortunes lost and found
And when your trail failed I walked holes
In both my soles
But I don't expect you back
You're somewhere making tracks
I crossed the burning bridges
And walked through miles of sand
Met the lawless and the law
But you beat all I ever saw

I dreamed a million miles
About your eyes and smiles
I tried to love the best
And to turn from all the rest
But I'd scan the skies for you
And I only saw your hue
They drew away your mould
You were made of frozen gold
And your heart would never thaw
You beat all I ever saw
