Lyrics

What Was Once Yours

I drove up to her house it was late at night.

I admit I hadin?t been there for a while.

There was a truck in the drive I?d never seen before.

I walked up the steps and I knocked three times.

There was a cold wind blowing like it was a sign,

And a strange man opened up the door.


He said,

"You know you can?t leave your woman too long.

Turn around and she?ll be gone.

A good woman is too hard to find.

What was once yours is now mine.

What once was yours is now mine."


Well, I drink too much and I smoke too much,

And I wrecked my truck cause I?m hard on the clutch.

But losing love can really open up your eyes.

I put the bottle down to make a few calls,

Drunk dialled my friends one and all,

Looking for an ear to sympathize.




You know what they all said:

"You know you can?t leave your woman too long.

Turn around and she?ll be gone.

A good woman is too hard to find.

What was once yours is now mine.

What once was yours is now mine."


I ain't saying I?ve been the best man.

Slip out with every woman I can.

I lost all my friends cause I slept with their wives.

I burned my bridges most every time.


I met Bobby Sue at the laundromat.

I never ever thought I?d meet another woman like that.

She had long blonde hair and clear blue eyes.

Well she took me home and time went by.

One day the phone rings and it's her other guy.

He say?s ?I?m coming home and I want what is mine?


You know what I told him:

"You know you can?t leave your woman too long.

Turn around and she?ll be gone.

A good woman is too hard to find.

What was once yours is now mine.

What once was yours is now mine."
