George Jones – A Lifetime To Regret lyrics

Tonight I'm all alone and broken hearted
A love we knew I never shall forget
And tell myself that lonely night we parted
I got a lifetime to regret.

They tell me you are happy with another
And I wonder if my memory lingers yet
The things I said the night we said goodbye, dear
Oh, I got a lifetime to regret.

--- Instrumental ---

If we could just erase the mistakes we made, dear
I'm sure we could find happy moments yet
But we can't change the past and I'm afraid, dear
That I got a lifetime to regret.

I know down in my heart that I'm forgivin'
'Cause I'm just like the fish caught in a net
I know true love is what mad my life worth livin'
I got a lifetime to regret...
