About Somewhere Along The Line
Dinah Washington recorded “Somewhere Along The Line” for her 1961 album Unforgettable.


Somewhere along the line
You met this heart of mine
You wooed it and won it
Now you would shun it
Over a glass of wine

Friends knew it all the time
That no wedding bells would chime
I was just a young dreamer, no match for a schemer
Yours was a lover’s crime

Folks gossiped, they said it was too good to be true
They even bet you’d search for someone new
This pendent world of ours was paradise
And I was blind with star dust in my eyes

You’re like gambler with his last dime
I know you will try it one more time
That’s why I pray like Napoleon Bonaparte
You’ll meet your Waterloo somewhere along the line
Somewhere along the line
