Gene Watson - She Found The Key Lyrics

I like the way that she unlocks my door
To the places that you've never hungered for
You loved me, girl, but not enough to stay
She found the key that you threw away

She found the key that only fits one door
To the room that I wore out walking the floor
You'd be locked out, girl, if you came around today
She found the key that you threw away

She found the key that only fits one door
To the room that I wore out walking the floor
You'd be locked out, girl, if you came around today
She found the key that you threw away
She found the key that you threw away

    To the places that you've never hungered for
    You loved me, girl, but not enough to stay

    She found the key that you threw away.....

  50. ulzana1880

    True "Country" performer. I wonder who'll step up to the mike and continue this rich tradition because so far country has been moving to the suburbs and pretty soon.....the city, no more down to earth music that has enriched the lives of those who love the genre.

    dana kirkwood

    Moe Pitney

  51. Helen Kelly

    Beautiful what a voice

  52. David Bell

  75. Larry Rockett

    Gene is just a born natural for country music

  76. Brian Roos

    Good job Gene on an old Lefty Frizzel song.

  77. MyCanadianeh

    there will never be another singer like this man he breaks all boundaries with his will take a lot of singers with a lot of songs to even reach the bottom of this mans ability to bring country to country music

  78. ardie S.

    I'd never heard this one and I love it.

  79. Pete Carpenter

    I saw Gene in an restaurant north of Atlanta.I can't remember the name of the place,the auditorium was down stairs. the restaurant was on the upper level
    Iwas working at the time,but slipped the waiter a few bucks and he slipped me in the show, this was in the 60.s hope the L&N RR will forgive me .PETECARPENTER

  80. larry . otero

    I love this guy. Pure country is what this is folks. Anybody know the name of the young steel guitarist? Very good player indeed.

  81. barb zook

    great song, they dont sing like this anymore.

    they dont sing like this anymore. thanks.

  82. Paul Murphy

    there is something about a country singer, as they get older, especially people like Gene Watson, they just get better with age, to see Gene perform today is just awesome;; i'm looking forward to seeing Gene perform in Canada real soon,, thank you for posting,,

  83. mosrite60

    Gene is number 1 in country its that simple folks. Too bad radio has given up on this giant of singer. Makes you wonder which idiot is running country stations these days.

  84. Dolly Kester

    This shirt should be in the Country Music Museum, and Gene Watson should be in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Every one reading this, call them and tell them so..

  85. Dolly Kester

    Dara, what a fun story!!!

  86. carol biggs

    nice song

  87. Dara Stone

    I love this song.I have a Key to A Room where you stayed one night in Col Ohio on West Broad St at Ramada Inn.You left a pair of Pants in the room and I run them out to Your Bus.And the Bus Driver said You could keep them.I said thats alright I have his Room Key.And could have kicked myself for not asking to at least meet you.I have always listened to your songs on the jukeboxes as I toured.And never got to run into you.

  88. jinger hart


  89. picksalittle

    i love how singers back then just stood there and sang their hearts out, no running around stage hiding in smoke in lights behind 10 harmony vocalists.

  90. buddyzroadie

    I have very much enjoyed listening to your videos today. They suit the mood perfectly. Great selection... Thanks!

  91. dave lewis

    yes its real country not todays crap

  92. MsBeaver2011


  93. Donnie Winters

    I guess someone has already mentioned that Lefty Frizzell recorded this as well, both Gene and Lefty's versions are awesome !

  94. Orbie Olsson

    Gene Watson is awesome! I love his voice. Thanks for this great post by the # 1 singer!!!

  95. Orbie Olsson

    I listen to Gene while I walk on my treadmill! Makes it fun!

  96. rufftele

    One of the greatest and most underrated country singers in the business. For all you trivia buffs... that is Tony Booth playing bass and singing harmony.

  97. twinPaula12

    Mercy sakes. I have to listen to this song a lot. Gene is one of the greatest artists of all time. This song is what real country gold is all about. The lyrics are terrific and when Gene sings there's so much warmth and soul in everything he sings. I am glad he is keeping it country - there's not enough true talent around these days and artists like Gene are the cream of the crop. Thank you again for posting this winner. - Paula

  98. Kitty Ghoots

    The wonderful man can sing any thing and make it sound like heaven, Thanks Gene for sharing your talent for all us country fans, We love ya
