Marty Robbins – Once Upon A Time lyrics

Once upon a time life was lovely
I never found time to complain
Once upon a time blue skies were mine
But now it's beginning to rain

I'm so unprepared for the weather
Although there's a storm in my heart
I'll just ignore the weather, pretend we're together
And linger alone in the dark

I've always been told that a rainbow
Usually follows the rain
But there's no glow of a rainbow
No sign of sunshine again

I'll just let the clouds cast their shadows
And hide that old moon from my view
Because if it finds me, it only reminds me
Of once upon a time with you

When that old moon finds me, it only reminds me
Of once upon a time with you
