Dolly Parton – I Took Him For Granted lyrics

I once was blind
But now I see
I took him for granted
She took him from me

I once had a love
But now now I have none
And I'm, I'm as blue as can be
I treated him a-wrong
And now I'm, I'm all alone
I took him for granted
She took him from me

Well if I had known then
Just what I know now
I would've treated him so differently
And if I, if I had known
Well then I
I could've shown him more love
Than he'll ever see from her

I thought I had his love
In the palm of my hand
But I, I guess she showed me
And now I, I understand
Just how she, she got my man
I took him for granted
She took him from me
