She Thinks His Name Was John (4:21)

Cover of Read My Mind

From Read My Mind and 8 other releases

This song is on Reba’s 50 Greatest Hits album, and is about a woman who knows every man she has ever been intimate with and where they are now, except for one and she thinks his name is John… only this one-night stand fter a few too many drinks) has left her HIV positive. A very well-written song, and very emotional.
