"You Left a Long, Long Time Ago" as written by and Willie Nelson....
You tell me today that you're leaving
But just think a while
I'm sure that you must know
Today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

Today's just the day that ends it all
Except the usual mem'ries
That always linger on
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

I stood with helpless hands
And watched me lose your love
A little more each day
Then it was gone
And I kept wond'rin'
Just how long until this day would come
Just how long could your pride keep hangin' on

So please don't say you're sorry
Don't say anything
Don't try to say why you must leave
Just go
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago
You left me a long, long time ago
