When we were young we played together
That's the way our love began
Now you're gone you've found another
And we're no more than just friends

Sixteen years we were married
I remeber the day that we were wed
Sixteen years is a mighty long time
Now you're gone I'm losing my mind

Days are long honey nights are lonesome
Seems like years are passed and gone
I didn't know that you were unhappy
I didn't know anything was wrong

* Refrain
