Ferlin Husky — Once lyrics

I was foolish - once
And I let my "once" get away

I was happy - once
You'd never believe it today
I got careless - once
All at once you got away

Life had beauty - once
It's not worth livin' today
I slipped out - once
All at once you slipped away


Oh great regret like the flavor of wine

Only grows deeper with the passing of time

Life had meaning - once
It's cold and so empty today
I was foolish - once
I let my "once" get away
