Amanda Lyrics - Waylon Jennings

Review The Song (7)



I've held it all inward, God knows, I've tried,
But it's an awful awakening in a country boy's life,
To look in the mirror in total surprise.
At the hair on my shoulders and the age in my eyes.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

It's a measure of people who don't understand,
The pleasures of life in a hillbilly band.
I got my first guitar when I was fourteen,
And I finally made forty: still wearing jeans.

Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have made you a gentleman's wife.

My name is Amanda and my aunt would sing this song to me and play her guitar for me growing up. I used to not care much for the song, but now that i am older i realize why and i also have grown to love waylon although he is no longer with us, his legend lives on within me it seems. When i hear this song i smile because it brings back memories. I have come to realize that waylon is GREAT!!

What this song means to me | Reviewer: Steve Van Hoose | 9/17/11

I've been a Bluegrass/Country performer for about 30 years now. Amanda was the VERY first song I ever sang before an audience. My knees were knocking together as I sang, but when I finished, everyone whooped and hollared, and a ham was born. Hearing that song always brings back that memory. Will miss you Waylon.

when i was born my dad loved this song ..so much mum and him named me after it..As a kid my dad would get jolly and crank it and sing it to me wit such passion god bless him.. When i was a child i didnt like the song, but now as a adult I really like the words and understand where he was coming from and why he named me Amanda.... I look bak and it touches my heart when ever i think of it..

Waylon sang this to me at a concert in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1993 when I was 13. I hate country music, but my dad always liked Waylon and wanted me to go with him. My little sister and I were the youngest people at the concert as far as I could see, and Waylon talked to us between songs. When he found out my name, he sang the song to me but with different words than the Amanda song on his album.

When I was younger my dad would listen to this song and he would sing it to me and to this day when he sings this song it still makes me cry because I know how he feels about me and when I was mad at him I would listen to this song and feel better
