Riff: Blake Shelton – “Mine Would Be You”

Nov 11, 2013

What’s your all-time high, your good as it gets?/Your hands-down, best-ever make-up sex/What’s your guilty pleasure, your old go-to?/Well if you ask me, mine would be you

from Mine Would be You lyrics by Blake Shelton

Shelton confesses that his woman is the all-time “best thing he lucked into,” and various country synonyms (as well as antonyms like “worst hangover”). A little on the cheesy side of cute, but props for possibly the first country song with verses in seven to break up the genre’s monotony; [LISTEN].
