"Old Standby" as written by Charles Fuzzy Owens and Red Simpson....
I never know how long I'll get to hold you I never know and you'll find someone new
You're only mine when you grow tired of someone else
I'm just another stoppin' place for you
I'm just your old standby that's all I am to you
I'm just your old standby you want me when you're blue
I know you never love me and the thought makes me cry
'Cause I know for sure that I'm nothin' more than just your old standby

I tell myself that lovin' you's not wrong but in my heart I know that it's a lie
You come around when you want me then you're gone
And once again I'm just your old standby
I'm just your old standby
