or
Hank Thompson

You told her lies as her starry eyes
Looked up in admiration
You painted schemes and lovely dreams
With all your temptation

You spoke of things like wedding rings
And promised her the world
For no cause at all you let her fall
And now she's yesterday's girl

You think it's smart to lure the heart
Of a girl whose lips you kissed
Is it just a game to add her name
To your broken-hearted list?

You've loved some long
You've loved some wrong
You promised each the world
Each game to be just a memory
And another yesterday's girl

Don't you sometimes feel that love
Is real the greatest thing in life?
Not one romance you gave the chance
To be your cherished wife

You cheat and lie you make them cry
And promise each the world
And one by one they each
Become another yesterday's girl

When autumn falls and you recall
The things that might have been
Then you'll pause and see your cause
The greed that's deep within

When you're old and love grows cold
I'll bet you'd give the world
To just relive and take and give
The love of a yesterday's girl
