"Not So Long Ago" as written by and Marty Robbins....
Not so long ago, she cared for me
I was young and acted foolishly
Broke her heart, caused us to part
Once upon a time

Unconcerned, I let her slip away
In my sorrow, now I curse the day
I broke her heart, caused us to part
Once upon a time

Once upon a time, I must confess
In my reach was complete happiness
Didn't know that I was really livin'
Once upon a time

Now another kisses her goodnight
She was mine, and would be mine tonight
If I'd only done a little givin'
Once upon a time

Once upon a time,
I laughed, the night, she said, this is the end
Made her cry in front of all her friends
Acted smart, and broke her heart
Once upon a time

I remember what I told the crowd
Let her go, I even yelled it loud
I talked a lot, and lost a lot
Once upon a time

Gone forever, never to return
Is the love that once so brightly burned
I remember once upon a time
How much I used to brag

Like so many little grains of sand
I let her slip through my foolish hands
And before I knew it, love had turned
From riches back to rags

Once upon a time she was my love.
