When I loved her. Report Abuse
'Well she didn't look as pretty as some others I have known.' A great opening line to a song about finding and then losing the love of your life.

Shandy. Report Abuse
A song that is quite surreal for Kristofferson. 'Laughing at somebody dying - is something that he never did', is a reference to his portayal of 'Billy the kid' in 'Pat Garrett and Billy the kid.' Could Shandy be Janis Joplin.

Nobody wins. Report Abuse
Sinatra recorded this. He also ruined the point of the song by changing the lyrics.He sang 'the loving was easy - its the leaving thats hard.' When it should have been 'the loving was easy - its the living thats hard.' Something a lot of people can relate to.
