Here Are the Lyrics to Luke Combs' 'She Got the Best of Me'

Jim Wright
Luke Combs

Singer-songwriter Luke Combs released his debut album, This One's for You, in June 2017 and he released a deluxe version -- This One's for You Too -- over the summer with five additional tracks. The last track on the album, "She Got the Best of Me," has become one of the album's most popular hits. Combs became the first soloist to score four straight career-opening No. 1s on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "She Got the Best of Me" just took the No. 1 spot this week.

Combs sings about a girl who broke his heart and took everything out of him, saying, "Now all that's left of me/ Is beating in this guitar." He released a music video for this heartfelt song, which takes fans through the timeline of his rise to fame. We follow him through North Carolina, to Tennessee, and Georgia as he performs at various venues. Combs is also set to perform at the Stagecoach music festival next year. 

Check out the lyrics and music video below for "She Got the Best of Me."

Seventeen, you don't think that much about life
You just live it
Like Kerosene dancin' 'round a fire
But you're in it

So you jump right in
Ain't afraid to fall
And you give it all

She got the best of me
She broke my heart
Now all that's left of me
Is beating in this guitar
Every night, a different town
She follows me around
So you get what's left of me
Yeah, you get what's left of me
'Cause she got the best of me

I picked myself up off the floor
And found something new worth livin' for
And a, old dusty hand-me-down six string
And a couple chords

I'm gettin' over her
A little more with every song
So y'all sing along

She got the best of me
She broke my heart
Now all that's left of me
Is beating in this guitar
Every night, a different town
She follows me around
So you get what's left of me
Yeah, you get what's left of me
'Cause she got the best of me

Whoa, whoa oh

She got the best of me
She broke my heart
Now all that's left of me
Is beating in this guitar
Every night, a different town
She follows me around
So you get what's left of me
Yeah, you get what's left of me
'Cause she got the best of me
She got the best of me
She got the best of me
