Ballad In Plain BbPDF
Words & Music by Joe LaMay

I once loved a girl - her eyes they were blue
And like a sweet love song she was gentle and true
But now she is gone for a life that is new
And she is the one I’m left thinking of

In the cold days of winter she offered her charms
And in the warmth of her room I fell into her arms
Oh, I was so easy - so quick to disarm
‘Cause she was the one I was thinking of

Forsaking all else - I truly did dare
To let down my guard and to show her I cared
And I threw myself into the hours we shared
‘Cause she was the one I was thinking of

Beneath the bare lightbulb at the close of the day
Around the old wooden table for hours we’d play
And the songs that were sung I recall to this day
‘Cause she is the one I’m left thinking of

Though she was the younger - the look in her eyes
And her innocence of youth made me realize
Though I was the older - she was the wise
And now she is the one I’m left thinking of

Though I knew she’d be leaving - right from the start
I was not prepared for the day we did part
For I gave her my love - but she left with my heart
And now she is the one I’m left thinking of

And like the old melody I use for this song
She is one I have known and will love for so long
I think of her often - in thoughts that are strong
‘Cause she is the one I’m left thinking of

Yes, I once loved a girl - her eyes they were blue
And like a sweet love song she was gentle and true
But now she is gone for a life that is new
And she is the one I’m left thinking of
