But what exactly makes “It Just Comes Natural” such an enduring classic? Well, let’s delve a bit deeper. Firstly, there’s Strait’s unmistakable voice. Warm, smooth, and with a touch of that Texas drawl, it caresses the lyrics with a sincerity that disarms you. He doesn’t try to overpower the song; instead, he lets it flow organically, much like the natural world he describes in the verses.

And those verses, oh those verses! They paint a vivid picture of life’s simple rhythms – the sun rising and setting, seasons changing, rivers carving their paths. Strait throws in iconic imagery associated with the American West – train whistles, cowboys riding, and tumbleweeds rolling. It’s a subtle reminder of his roots, yet the beauty of these elemental forces transcends geographical boundaries.

The song’s brilliance lies in its ability to connect the vastness of nature with the intimacy of love. Strait sings, “Sun shines, clouds rain… And I love you. It just comes natural.” He isn’t professing his love with grand gestures or flowery metaphors. It’s a quiet declaration, woven into the fabric of existence, as natural as the changing tides.

This beautiful simplicity extends to the melody itself. It’s a classic country two-step, with a gentle guitar strumming and a touch of steel guitar that adds a touch of wistfulness. There’s no complex orchestration, no dramatic build-up; just a steady, comforting rhythm that allows the lyrics and Strait’s voice to take center stage.
