One Time and One Time Only

E A E A E I spent my hungry young years running wild. E A B7 There was so much for me to do. E A E And I spent cities like a handful of change, B7 E A E But I never quit looking for you. E A One time and one time only, E A Been such a long time lonely. E A B7 One time for all time it will be. E A Been waiting such a long time, E A Each time has been the wrong time, E B7 E Until you came to me.

I looked for you in every face I saw,
And could not find you anywhere.
Then finally one day I quit trying at all,
And looked up to see you standing there.

One time and one time only,
Been such a long time lonely.
One time for all time it will be.
Been waiting such a long time,
Each time has been the wrong time,
Until you came to me.

I don't mind telling you what's on my mind,
It's no big secret anymore:
I've got no plans at all for moving on,
That's the one thing I was never looking for.

One time and one time only,
Been such a long time lonely.
One time and all time it will be.
Been waiting such a long time,
Each time has been the wrong time,
Until you came to me.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1965)
