Today Will Be The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life
Recorded by LaWanda Lindsey
Written by Buddy Alan and Jim Shaw

 
G 
I'm walkin' in fields of clover watchin' clouds go driftin' over
 
Listening as a songbird sings a  
D7 
special song for me
Catchin' all the rays of sunshine breathin' fresh air feelin' real fine
 
Can't remember when I felt so  
G 
loose and fancy free
I loved him and I left him though it wasn't my idea you know it
G7 
Took a little pushin' from his  
C 
side
 
Though it took a little while I soon  
G 
remembered how to smile
 
And  
D7 
today will be the first day of the  
C 
rest of my  
G 
life
 
Cause  
C 
today will be the first day of the  
G 
rest of my life
 
I'm  
D7 
gonna start all over and this  
G 
time I'll do it right
C 
Thought I couldn't live without him  
G 
then I saw the light
 
And  
D7 
today will be the first day of the  
C 
rest of my  
G 
life
At first I thought I had a true one can't remember when I knew one
 
That I loved and trusted like I  
D7 
did that man of mine
Then there came the first suspicions I was sensing new additions
 
To his list of female friends I  
G 
estimated 
 
nine
He lead me round by chain and collar spent my every dollar
 
Till I  
G7 
realized I wasn't very  
C 
bright
 
I'm so glad I did wake up soon it  
G 
would have been too late
 
And  
D7 
today will be the first day of the  
C 
rest of my  
G 
life
Repeat #3
