Song Meaning
Verse 1
I had myself a true love
A true love who was something to see
I had myself a true love
At least that's what I kept on telling me
Verse 2
The first thing in the morning
I still try to think of a way to be with him
Some part of the evening
And that's the way I live through the day
Verse 3
I had myself a true love, but now he's gone
And left me for good
The lord knows I don't hear those back yard
Whispers going round the neighborhood
Verse 4
There maybe a lot of things I miss
A lot of things I don't know
But I do know this, now I ain't got no love
And once upon a time I had a true love
Verse 5
In the evening, in the doorway
While I stand there and wait for his coming
With the house swept and the clothes hung
And a pot on the stove where I had meal
Verse 6
Where is he while I waste the rising newel?
Where is he? Why'd he gone so soon?
Now there ain't no way that it used to be, what now?
And everybody keeps telling me
Verse 7
There are may be a lot of things I miss
A lot of things I don't know
But I do know this now...
I ain't got no love
Verse 8
And once upon a time I had a true love.
