I had myself a true love,A true love that was somethin’ too see.I had myself a true love, at least that’s what I kept on tellin’ me.The first thing in the morning, I still try to think of a way,To be with him some part of the evenin’,And that’s the way I live through the day.She had herself a true love, and now he’s gone and left for good.The lord knows I done heard those backyard whispers goin roun’The neighborhood.There may be alot of things I miss,A lot of things I don’t know,But I do know this, now I ain’t got no love,And once upon a time I had a true love.In the evenin, by the doorway, while I stand there and wait for his comingWith the house swept, and the clothes hung,And the pot on the stove there a hummin’,Where is he while I watch the risen moon.With that gal in that damn ole saloon.No that ain’t the way that it used to beNo and everybody keeps tellin me,There may be alot of things I miss, I lot of things I don’t knowBut I do know this.Now I ain’t got no love, but once upon a time I had a true love
