Legend In My Time
Recorded by Austin Graham & The Donie Collins Showband

If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time.
If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
Id be a legend in my time.

But they don't give awards
And there's no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
Over love that's in vain;

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Everyone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time.

Repeat from "But they don't give awards..."
Originally recorded by Don Gibson, 1960
