Hank Locklin – One Step Ahead Of My Past lyrics

The love that I've waited and longed for is here in my arms at last
But she doesn't know all about me I'm just one step ahead of my past
Now I'm walking the old straight and narrow but yesterday's coming up fast
Cause you can't keep people from talking I'm just one step ahead of my past
Cause when I played at love I made my mistakes where everyone could see
Now I'm wondering if she'll understand is always haunting me
Will the news break the heart of my darling
And close the door to my future at last
Till the day she knows all about me I'm one step ahead of my past
