Wasn't We a Pair

Part of my Old Songs project. A tale of loss and regret told in the manner of a Mexican ragtime cowboy song.


Wasn't I your man
Wasn't you my gal
I was lucky then
I had it all
What did I say
To make you cry like that
You showed me the door
You handed me my hat

What can I say
I ain't already said
I miss your voice
I miss our bed
Wasn't we in love
Wasn't we a pair
I reach in the dark
And find you ain't there

What am I now
Not much of a man
I sleep where I lie down
I work where I can
I wait for the day
When you call me home
Ain't half what I used to be
But I'm twice as alone

This one, I think, fits in this format than I'm the Same Man. The rubato feel works nicely too. Cool idea for a project!
