"She's Got a Way" is a song by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, originally released on his first solo album, Cold Spring Harbor (1971). It was also featured as a single from the 1981 live album Songs in the Attic, peaking at number 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1982.
In a 1981 interview, Joel expressed mixed feelings about the song: " . . . I thought it was cornball for years. I had trouble singing it at first. Then I got into it and decided everybody has a corny side, I suppose".
