​Fifteen Years Ago

This song is by Billy Walker and appears on the album I'm Gonna Keep On Loving You/She Goes Walkin' Through My Mind (1971).

I saw a man today who said he talked to you not so long ago I think a month or two
And 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 name
I'm as broken up inside as though it's been a week or so
Makes a mighty strong love to keep a man thinking of a girl
He hasn't seen since fifteen years ago

I've got a lovely wife who thinks the world of me
Promised her my love through all eternity
I've tried hard to make her happy and so far she doesn't know
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 name
I'm as broken up inside as though it's been a week or so
Takes a mighty long time to get a real love off your mind I know
Because I've tried since fifteen years ago
I know I've tried since fifteen years ago
