The Statler Brothers — Fifteen Years Ago lyrics

I saw a man today who said he talked to you
Not so long ago I think a month or two
As my mind raced back in time I prayed oh Lord don't let it show
He thinks I forgot you fifteen years ago
Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
Why did he have to mention your sweet name
I'm as broken up inside as if it's been a week or so
Takes a mighty strong love to keep a man thinkin' of
A girl he hasn't seen since fifteen years ago
[ steel ]
I've got a lovely wife who thinks the world of me
Promised her my love through our eternity
I've tried hard to make her happy and so far she doesn't know
That I can't shake this thing of fifteen years ago
Fifteen years ago and I still feel the same
Why did he have to mention your good name
I'm as broken up inside as if it's been a week or so
Takes a mighty long time to get a real love off of your mind
I know I've tried since fifteen years ago
I know I've tried since fifteen years ago
