Someday I think I'll take up thinking and try my best to understand
How she could be loving me forever and leaving on the other hand
Last night I thought I'd see a movie to help me get my thoughts in hand
I think what I saw was the western preacher or James Bond on the other hand
I placed the ring upon one finger of her left hand
The one who said she'd stay forever is gone on the other hand
(This is Joe Talbott on the Hawaiian steel guitar)
[ steel ]
But today the world looks brighter I feel just like a brand new man
I love her no longer I don't miss her I'm lying on the other hand
She's gone I know I'm being foolish I should act like a grown up man
But things could get worse I could start crying I do on the other hand
I placed the ring upon one finger...
The one who said she'd stay forever is gone on the other hand
