back then lyrics – wanda jackson

verse one:
it was almost a full century ago
the last time, that my heart did not run slow
the rain has fallen on us ever since then
because of that, new crops will not begin
i think it is because, my love ran away
i hope she comes back, but it won’t be today
when she finally does, i will cry for joy
ask her to, never again, treat my heart like a toy

i made one of the biggest mistakes
told her to leave, gave myself a heartache
i regret it fully, i cried for her today
my life has fallen apart, since she ran away

baby, plese come back, i am on my knees
i guess that this, is my final plea

chorus x 2
