Billy Joe Shaver – Fun While It Lasted lyrics

I met her one evenin' in a bar room downtown
She was the picture of truth
Her shoulders were sagged and her head was bowed down
Like me she was livin' the blues

When the music had ended and the crowd dwindled down
And we were the last lonely two
We left with each other when nothin' was left
And nothin' left better to do

And it was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long
Before we knew it the thrill was all gone
And we both wound up singin' the same lonesome song
It was fun while it lasted, but it didn't last long

I had a woman and she had a man
Before we both lost it all
When I thought of her that's when she thought of him
And I never could stand that thought

It was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long
Before the mornin' I'd packed up and gone
And we said goodbye singin' the same worn out song
It was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long
