This one was from the early 70's, country, female artist. I just remember part of the lyrics:
I told him that I loved him because I loved him at the time
At the time I didn't want any other lips touching mine
I once thought I'd seen everything,
But til I met you I was blind
Well that's the way it was when I loved him at the time.
At the time I'd touched your hand and I'd never seen your face
And I had never felt your tender warm embrace
If you've never had filet mignon, peanut butter tastes just fine.
If you've neve rhad a T-bone steak, coffee and crackers'll suit you fine.
And that's the way I loved him at the time

That's what I remember of it, I think I have it pretty much in the right order-It wasn't a chart topper either but it had a catchy tune.
Anybody remember it?

New Gen you have a way of remembering some unusual songs. LOL
I looked through a list of Jean Shepherd songs I have access to and I am sorry but that one, "At the Time" is not on it.

"At The Time" by Jean Shepherd 1973(I believe written by Bill Anderson)

He probaby remembers this Spoonriver antholgy hit from 1916.>>>>> “Indignation” Jones

YOU would not believe, would you,
That I came from good Welsh stock?
That I was purer blooded than the white trash here?
And of more direct lineage than the New Englanders
And Virginians of Spoon River? 5
You would not believe that I had been to school
And read some books.
You saw me only as a run-down man,
With matted hair and beard
And ragged clothes. 10
Sometimes a man’s life turns into a cancer
From being bruised and continually bruised,
And swells into a purplish mass,
Like growths on stalks of corn.
Here was I, a carpenter, mired in a bog of life 15
Into which I walked, thinking it was a meadow,
With a slattern for a wife, and poor Minerva, my daughter,
Whom you tormented and drove to death.
So I crept, crept, like a snail through the days
Of my life. 20
No more you hear my footsteps in the morning,
Resounding on the hollow sidewalk,
Going to the grocery store for a little corn meal
And a nickel’s worth of bacon.
