Lyrics
(Harlan Howard)

Once upon a time a boy and a girl met
He handed her a line she'll never forget
Now when he sees her she's always cryin'
But she used to be happy once upon a time.

Now the boy was you, the girl was me
You wanted your freedom, well, now you're free
I'm back to a life of loneliness
No one would ever guess.

Once upon a time I even smiled
I looked at life like a happy child
I wasn't always this low in mind
Somebody used to love me once upon a time.

--- Instrumental ---

Once upon a time I even smiled
I looked at life like a happy child
I wasn't always this low in mind
Somebody used to love me once upon a time.

Once upon a time, once upon a time.
Once upon a time, once upon a time...
