      About "Big Chance"

      Lyrics for Patty Loveless - "Big Chance"

      Well, there's a boy down Shelby Gap
      And I like sittin' on his lap
      I'm his gal and he's my man
      We been makin' weddin' plans

      Brought him home to meet my ma
      She raised Cain and dropped her jaw
      "Girl, you're crazy as a bat, you ain't gonna marry that"

      Looka here mama, looka here daddy
      This is my true love, we're gonna get married
      Ain't a gonna hem-haw, ain't a gonna tarry
      This is my big chance, we're gonna get married

      Oh, mama, daddy, can't you see
      Holler's closin' in on me
      Cousins pourin' down like rain
      They're runnin' out of given names
      It's so crowded I can't breathe
      You need one less mouth to feed
      Forty dozen here at home
      You won't miss me when I'm gone

      Looka here mama, looka here daddy
      This is my true love, we're gonna get married
      Ain't a gonna hem-haw, ain't a gonna tarry
      This is my big chance, we're gonna get married

      Oh, he's the prettiest in these hills
      I don't hitch him, some gal will
      You just messed up my big chance
      For married bliss and true romance
      Two things y'all don't realize
      Shelby boys is mighty shy
      And courtin' life is extra hard
      If I can't keep 'em in the yard

      Oh, another one gone
