Jim Reeves – One That Got Away lyrics

Out with someone new almost every day
People look at me I can hear them say
He's so lucky he has everything going his way
I can't let them know that I really don't
I'm not with the one that I really want
And I'm still in love with the one that got away

The one that got away took all my love not just a part
The one that got away got away with my heart

If we chance to meet on some lonely street
And I pass you by without a word to say
I'm just thinking 'bout the one that got away
[ piano ]
If we chance to meet...
