One Time Only

Words and Music by Tom Paxton

I spent my hungry young years running wild .
There was a lot I had to do.
And I spent cities like a handful of change,
But I never quit looking for you.

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.

I looked for you in every face I saw.
I could not find you any where.
Then finally one day I quit trying at all,
Looked up and saw you standing there.


I don't mind telling you what's on my mind.
It's no big secret any more.
I have no plans at all for moving on,
That's one thing I never been for.
