Barbra Streisand - "True Love" lyrics

I had myself a true love,

A true love that was somethin too see.
I had myself a true love, at least thats what I kept on tellin me.

To be with him some part of the evenin,
The first thing in the morning, I still try to think of a way,

And thats the way I live through the day.

She had herself a true love, and now hes gone and left for good.
The lord knows I done heard those backyard whispers goin roun

The neighborhood.

There may be alot of things I miss,

A lot of things I dont know,
But I do know this, now I aint got no love,
And once upon a time I had a true love.

In the evenin, by the doorway, while I stand there and wait for his coming

With the house swept, and the clothes hung,

And the pot on the stove there a hummin,

Where is he while I watch the risen moon.
With that gal in that damn ole saloon.
No that aint the way that it used to be

No and everybody keeps tellin me,

There may be alot of things I miss, I lot of things I dont know

But I do know this.
Now I aint got no love, but once upon a time I had a true love
