I'm Sorry We Met
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Though you have refused to see me my dear
You'd rather I'd be all alone
Still I can't forget the kisses we knew
And the days when I called you my own

But you found another and you loved him too
My heart is broken I'm sad and I'm blue
I am sorry we met it's so hard to forget
The days that used to be

Though you found another

And though you weren't true I
Still think of you




And your memory is so dear to me
But you found another
