Last night I came home
And I knocked on my door
And I called to my love
As I oft had before
And I knocked and I knocked
No answer there came
No kisses to greet me
No voice called my name

And I couldn't believe it was true
Oh Lord, I couldn't believe it was true
And my eyes filled with tears
And I must have aged ten years
And I couldn't believe it was true

Oh the shock was so great
I am quivering yet
And I'll try to forgive
But I cannot forget
My heartbreaking loss
Is another man's gain
And her happiness always
I hope will remain

And I couldn't believe it was true
Oh Lord, I couldn't believe it was true
And my eyes filled with tears
And I must have aged ten years
And I couldn't believe it was true
