Written and Recorded by Marty Robbins
[C]When but a boy I [F]courted [C]Sally
My life was young not quite [Am]sixteen
We [C]talked of [F]things I sometimes [C]dreamed of
And things [F]beyond my wildest [C]dreams
At seventeen [F]I met [C]Wynonna
Her warm red lips set me [Am]aglow
She [C]taught me [F]things she should not [C]teach me
More than a [F]young man ought to [C]know
At nineteen years my [F]love was [C]Sarah
She was much older than the [Am]rest
Of [C]all the [F]men she said had [C]kissed her
She loved the [F]way I kissed her [C]best
Time has [Am]flown and I am [C]older
My years are [Am]five and thirty-[C]five
Too late too [F]late I’ve met my [C]lover
A woman [F]very much [C]alive
Lolene Lolene your [F]name is [C]music
Your nearness makes my blood run [Am]wild
[C]Alas [F]alas I cannot [C]claim you
Compared to [F]me you’re but a [C]child
So one last time [F]I must be [C]with you
And kiss the lips that thrilled my [Am]heart
[C]And then [F]goodbye no more to [C]see you
Forever [F]we must be [C]apart[/chordpress]

Who is Marty Robbins?
– Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 – December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist, and NASCAR racing driver. Robbins was one of the most popular and successful country and western singers for most of his nearly four-decade career, which spanned from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.
Born in Glendale, Arizona, Robbins taught himself guitar while serving in the United States Navy during World War II, and subsequently drew fame performing in clubs in and around his hometown. In 1956, he released his first No. 1 country song, “Singing the Blues” and one year later, released two more No. 1 hits, “A White Sport Coat” and “The Story of My Life”. In 1959, Robbins released his signature song, “El Paso”, for which he won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song began Robbins’ association with western balladry, a style which would become a staple of his career. Later releases that drew critical acclaim include “Don’t Worry”, “Big Iron” and “Honkytonk Man”, the last for which the 1982 Clint Eastwood film is named, and in which Robbins made his final appearance before death.
Over the course of his career, Robbins recorded more than 500 songs and 60 albums, and won two Grammy Awards, was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was named the 1960s Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music. Robbins was a commercial success in both the country and pop genres, and his songs were covered by many other famous artists, including Johnny Cash, the Grateful Dead and Elvis Presley. His music continues to have an influence in pop culture today, having recently appeared in several contemporary pop culture features, including the video game Fallout: New Vegas, and the series finale of AMC’s Breaking Bad.
