The road is bitter
The stars have lost their glitter
The winds grows colder
And suddenly you’re older
And all because of the man that got away

No more his eager call
The writing’s on the wall
The dreams you dreamed have all gone astray

The man that won you
Has run off and undone you
That great beginning
Has seen the final inning
Don’t know what happened
It’s all a crazy game

No more that all time thrill
For you’re been through the mill
And never a new love will be the same

Good riddance , goodbye
Every trick of his you’re onto
But fools will be fools
And where’s he gone to ?

The road gets rougher
It’s lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow he may turn up
There’s just no let up the live long night and day

Every since this world began
There is nothing sadder
Than a one-man woman looking for
The man that got away
The man that got away
