Jimmie Van Zant – Ain’t Quite Mary Jane Lyrics

She turned eighteen in the nick of time
To leave a town fulla broken hearted boys behind
Mississippi in mid July
Never was her style

I was smokin’ on a sidewalk in San Antone
She was walkin’ my way with a sun dress on
All at once every woman I’d ever known
Disappeared behind her smile

‘Cause they ain’t quite Mary Jane
She’s one of a kind in a world of the same
From here on out, everything
Ain’t quite Mary Jane

21 7 with a few to sleep
Every hour I breathed was hers to keep
Biggest damn lie I ever believed
Was thinkin’ she would stick around

‘Cause that ain’t quite Mary Jane
She’s one of a kind in a world of the same
From here on out, everything
Ain’t quite Mary Jane

Someday I’ll fall in love
And I’ll try to make it true
But almost good enough
Is the best I’ll ever do

Ain’t quite Mary Jane
She’s one of a kind in a world of the same
From here on out, everything
Ain’t quite Mary Jane

‘Cause they ain’t quite Mary Jane
She’s one of a kind in a world of the same
From here on out, everything
Ain’t quite Mary Jane
