​Where Were You When I Needed You

This song is by Tommy Roe and appears on the album Sweet Pea (1966).

Don't bother cryin', don't bother crawlin'
It's all over now, no use in stallin'
The love I once felt, I don't feel anymore for you
This time I'll even open the door for you
You walked out when I was down
Well now I'm well off
And look who's comin' round

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where... ere... ere

You're lookin' good, it's hard to fight it
But no use explainin', I've already decided
That livin' with you, it's worse than without you
I won't spend a lifetime a-worryin' about you
Oh, things got rough and you disappeared
Now I'm back on my feet
But look, look who's standing there

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where... ere... ere

Oh, you were so young, and you were so wild
I knew you were nobody's innocent child
That first day I saw you, you really got to me
I thought I could change you, what good did it do me
Oh, things got rough and you wouldn't wait
Now you're tripping back
But babe, it's too late

Where were you when I needed you
Where were you when I wanted you
Where were you when I needed you
Where... ere... ere
