Hear Luke Combs’ New Single ‘She Got the Best of Me’

Luke Combs is on a roll. His first three singles, “Hurricane,” When It Rains it Pours,” and “One Number Away,” all topped the U.S. Country Airplay charts. Now for his latest single, Combs is releasing an older song written before he moved to Nashville.

Written by Combs, Rob Snyder and Channing Wilson, “She Got the Best of Me” is a soaring ballad that showcases Combs’ mighty vocals. The song follows a man who turns to music in the wake of a break up.

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,” Combs sings. “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’ Lyrics:

At 17 you don’t think that much about life
You’re just livin’
Like kerosene dancing ’round the 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
In an 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

(Repeat chorus)
