Fun While It Lasted (Shaver Billy Joe)

I met her one evenin' in a bar room downtown She was the picture of truth Her shoulders were sagged and her head was bowed down Like me she was livin' the blues When the music had ended and the crowd dwindled down And we were the last lonely two We left with each other when nothin' was left And nothin' left better to do And it was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long Before we knew it the thrill was all gone And we both wound up singin' the same lonesome song It was fun while it lasted, but it didn't last long I had a woman and she had a man Before we both lost it all When I thought of her that's when she thought of him And I never could stand that thought It was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long Before the mornin' I'd packed up and gone And we said goodbye singin' the same worn out song It was fun while it lasted but it didn't last long
