[Intro – A Cowboy's Prayer (Badger Clark)] I'm no slave to whistle, clock, or bell; Nor weak-eyed prisoner of Wall Street. Let me be easy on the man that's down; Let me be square and generous with all. And guide me on the long, dim trail ahead that stretches upward, toward the great divide. [Verse 1] I saw her through the window today She was sittin' in the Silver Spoon Cafe I started to keep going but something made me stop She used to love me a lot She looked lonely and I knew the cure Old memories would win her heart for sure I thought I'd walk on in and I'd give it my best shot She used to love me a lot I sat down beside her and she smiled She said "where have you been? It's been a while" She was glad to see me, I could almost read her thoughts She used to love me a lot [Hook 1] She used to love me with a love that wouldn't die Looking at her now I can't believe I said goodbye It would only take a minute to turn back the clock She used to love me a lot [Verse 2] I remember how good it was back then And I said "it's not too late to start again We could spend the night together, take up where we left off" She used to love me a lot But I panicked as she turned to walk away As she went out the door I heard her say "Yes I'm in need of something, but something you ain't got But I used to love you a lot" [Hook 2] I thought she loved me with a love that wouldn't die Looking at her now I can't believe she said goodbye She just left me standing there, I've never been so shocked She used to love me a lot [Outro] She used to love me a lot She used to love me a lot She used to love me a lot She used to love me a lot
