  • Well, I waited four long winters
    Yes, I waited in the sun
    I was crying all alone
    While you were out having fun
    I gave you four years of chances
    But you threw em all away
    I gave you one thousand, four hundred sixty-one days

    I gave you four years of chances
    To try to be your wife
    I cleaned your shirts
    And cooked up your supper
    But you stayed up late at night
    I gave you four years of chances
    To try and fill a happy home
    But now one more may as well be
    A million and one

    And now you know you lost me, darling
    And you can't me back
    Ain't that just like a man
    To change so fast
    Because you want what you can't have
    And now I'm going to say it slowly
    Before I got away
    You had me one thousand, four hundred sixty-one days

    I gave you four years of chances
    To try to be your wife
    I cleaned your shirts
    And cooked up your supper
    But you stayed up late at night
    I gave you four years of chances
    To try and fill a happy home
    But now one more may as well be
    A million and one

    I found myself a good man now
    You know he treats me like he should
    We live in a shack by a railroad track
    He's out back chopping wood
    We don't have have too much money
    But I'll tell you why that's okay
    He loves me every moment
    Of them three hundred sixty-five days

    I gave you four years of chances
    To try to be be your wife
    I cleaned your shirts
    And washed up the dishes
    But you never did treat me right
    I gave you four years of chances
    To try and build a happy home
    But now one more may as well be
    A million and one

    But now one more may as well be a million and one Writer/s: MARGO PRICE
