      About "That's the Way It Could Have Been"

      Lyrics for Dolly Parton - "That's the Way It Could Have Been"

      I was so excited when you asked if I could go
      But mom said I'd have to ask my daddy
      I met him at the front door so afraid that he'd say no
      But he smiled and said, "Let mama get you ready."
      In your cotton shirt and faded jeans, you came for me
      And the gingham dress was all I had to wear
      With a dollar in your pocket and a borrowed car
      You picked a yellow daisy for my hair

      That's the way it could have been

      Oh, that's the way it should have been
      If I had met you way back then
      That's the way it would have been

      I put away my gingham for a pretty dress of white
      And you wore a suit instead of faded jeans
      Our wedding day was perfect and we loved away the night
      Life for us was filled with lots of dreams

      We bought a house upon a hill outside of town
      And two young people finally settled in
      And you just won't believe the little children running 'round
      And they pick yellow daisies now and then

      And that's the way it could have been
      Oh, that's the way it should have been
      If I had met you way back then
      That's the way it would have been

      That's the way it could have been
