​When I Had You

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album Jerry Jeff Walker (1972).

When I had you
I had things to do
I never took time for you.

Now that you're gone
And all I got it time
All I do is think of you.

We never want the thing
We already got.
We only want what we can't have.
And just like child
Who's thrown away his toy,
Once someone has got it
How he crys to get it back.

Never want water
Till well runs dry.
And then you can't believe it's gone.

Now that I see
Just how much you mean to me
I can't believe I'm so alone.
