The Statler Brothers One Takes the Blame Lyrics

sponsored links
When it's over, God knows as well as we did
When we pack up, stack up what's her's and what's his
When we make up the stories to cover up the shame
They never will believe, we suddenly fell out of love
So one takes the bow, one takes the blame

It won't be easy to throw away so many years in smile
But don't feel guilty we gave that our best for a while
But the story we tell our friends must always be the same
Cause they never would believe it was really no ones fault
One takes the bow, one takes the blame

One takes the bow, one takes the blame
That's the way you have to play the game
Your friends meet someone, they can talk about and blame
And God forbid the [?] the same, ain't that a shame?

When we get lonely and [?] will get now and then
Just remember that somewhere we both still have a friend
Love's not forever and ours went as gently as it came
So for all the years I loved you and you know I really loved you
You take the bow and I'll take the blame
You take the bow and I'll take the blame
