I Couldn't Believe It Was True
   ------Willie Nelson

Well, last night I came home an' I knocked on my door,
An' I called to my love as I oft had before.
An' I knocked an' I knocked: no answer thee came.
No kisses to greet me or voice call my name.

An' I couldn't believe it was true, oh Lord.
Couldn't believe it was true.
An' my eyes filled with tears an' I must've aged in years,
An' I couldn't believe it was true.

Instrumental break.

Well, the shock was so great, I am quiverin' yet.
An' I'll try to forgive but I cannot forget.
My heart breakin' loss is another man's gain.
Her happiness, always, I hope will remain.

An' I couldn't believe it was true, oh Lord.
Couldn't believe it was true.
An' my eyes filled with tears an' I must've aged in years,
An' I couldn't believe it was true.
