She Thinks His Name Was John Lyrics - Reba Mcentire

Review The Song (3)

(Sandy Knox, Steve Rosen)

She can account for all of the men in her past
Where they are now, who they married, how many kids they have
She knew their backgrounds, family and friends
A few she even talks to now and then
But there is one she can't put her finger on
There is one who never leaves her thoughts
And she thinks his name was John

A chance meeting, a party a few years back
Broad shoulders and blue eyes, his hair was so black
He was a friend of a friend you could say
She let his smile just sweep her away
And in her heart though she knew that it was wrong
But too much wine and she left his bed at dawn
And she thinks his name was John

Now each day is one day that's left in her life
sponsored links
She won't know love, have a marriage or sing lullabies
She lays all alone and cries herself to sleep
'Cause she let a stranger kill her hopes and her dreams
And all her friends say what a pity what a loss
And in the end when she was barely hanging on
All she could say is she thinks his name was John
She thinks his name was John

'she thinks his name was john' | Reviewer: Sandy | 12/18/2007

it took me several times to hear the song, but in the lyrics, she contracted aids from him, which is why in the lyrics: 'she can't account for all the men in her past' , 'now each day is one day thats left in her life'... 'and in the end when she was barely hanging on'...basically,i think she had a 1 night stand, that resulted in her becoming sick. maybe she'd had 1 night stands most of her life, and thought 1 more wouldn't hurt. its a sad, but true song,it happens everyday, unfortunately (people contracting aids)... thanks reba for this awesome song!! i think she should sing it again to bring it back into the year 2008,as a reminder as to how fragile life can really be.

Maybe A Little Less Confused?? | Reviewer: Janna | 7/30/2007

In response to 'A little confused?' by Sam D...
I also like this song; it really puts the truth of what can happen if you have sex with someone whom you don't know the life of. I think her & this John character had sex (with consent by her so it was not rape). I don't think she got pregnant because it said she won't sing lullabies in her lifetime. I believe, from what the lyrics say that she contracted the HIV virus from John and in the end AIDS killed her without the chance to marry and have children of her own. And she sees it as him killing her but she can’t remember much about him. I hope this helped you & is a little less confusing.

A little confused? | Reviewer: Sam D | 7/9/2007

I really like this song, but everytime I listen to it, it's kinda confusing...this John character, what did he do to her? Did he rape her, get her pregnant, give her an STD, cause I don't understand why she couldn't still get married and everything. Someone please explain.
