Marianne Faithfull That Was The Day Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2011 11:00:00 AM

Going home in a trailer filled with canada dry,
Looking forward to being with you.
Got in to the broadway and what do i find ?
Some lady's been sleeping there, too.

I was dreamin' of our meetin' all down the m1
'cause i hadn't seen you for so long.
Then out of the blue, something came down and warned me
And i sat there and wrote down this song.

That was the day that the coke came to nashville,
That was the day i laughed till i cried.
That was the day all my dreams turned to ashes
And i lost my blues and i smiled.

Well, i walked in the door and i heard you two laughing,
Just like i'd hoped that we'd do.
So i went up the stairs, left your keys on the table,
And i wrote on the mirror, 'we're through!'.

That was the day that the coke came to nashville,
That was the day that i had, honey.
That was the day that the coke came to nashville,
And i've got the blues out just bad.

Going home on a train, going back to my mother,
Feeling better already, keep telling myself:
'don't you cry, you'll forget him and find a new lover,
So let's sit back and drink to his health.'

That was the day that the coke came to nashville,
That was the day i laughed till i cried.
That was the day that i felt my heart breaking,
Ain't it funny, after all i've survived.
Ain't it funny, after all i've survived.
