​The One That Got Away

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album Gentleman Jim (RCA Victor) (1963).

Out with someone new,
Almost every day
People look at me
I can hear them say
He's so lucky he has
Everything going his way.

I can't let them know
That I really don't
I'm not with the one
That I really want
And I'm still in love
With the one that got away.

The one that got away
Took all my love not just a part
The one that got away
Got away with my heart.

If we chance to meet
On some lonely street
And I pass you by
Without a word to say
I'm just thinking
'Bout the one that got away.

--- Instrumental ---

If we chance to meet
On some lonely street
And I pass you by
Without a word to say
I'm just thinking
'Bout the one that got away...
