Last night I come home and I knocked on my door
I called to my love as I oft had before
I knocked and I knocked but no answer it came
No kisses to greet me, no voice called my name

I couldn't believe it was true, oh Lord
I couldn't believe it was true
My eyes filled with tears
I must have aged ten years
I couldn't believe it was true

I let myself in and I walk to our bed
I found a note there and the message it read
The truth like a bolt from the blue in the dawn
My sweetheart had left me, my darlin' had gone

I couldn't believe it was true, oh Lord
I couldn't believe it was true
My eyes filled with tears
I must have aged ten years
I couldn't believe it was true

The shock was so great I am quivering yet
I tried to forgive but I cannot forget
My heartbreakin' loss is another man's gain
Her happiness always I hope will remain

I couldn't believe it was true, oh Lord
I couldn't believe it was true
My eyes filled with tears
I must have aged ten years
I couldn't believe it was true
