(Lori McKenna)

Next time he tries to leave
I’m gonna help him to the door
Won’t be no sorrow from me
cause there’s no sorrow anymore
I tried like hell to make him happy
but lord I’m no magician
Just don’t know what happened to my
sweet disposition

My daddy and my sister call me and say
little girl you sound so tired
I wanna tell them all the truth
but instead I just hide it
If ever I feel alone it is alone by my own volition
I just don’t know what happened to my
sweet disposition

Sweet disposition,
keeps me warm when the world gets cold
Sweet, sweet sweet disposition,
when are you gonna save my soul

I believe everyone is good
but I’ve been wrong a time or two
When a friend kicks you in the gut
there’s not much that you can do
Oh but that friend she was never my friend
The only thing she feels is ambition
Still I’m left searching for my
sweet disposition

Repeat chorus
My soul

My mother left me a wedding band
and impossible shoes to fill
Something I’ve always tried to do
but I know I never will
If you ask my children about me
I wish in their brief description
They say I love them with a true heart and a sweet disposition
Say lord I love them with a true heart and a sweet disposition
