I'M GONNA LOVE YOU ONE MORE TIME
(Ira & Charlie Louvin/Acuff-Rose, BMI)
Oh, I've just read the letter you wrote me,
And these tear stains you cannot deny.
I can see that you're tired of your new love,
So I'll answer in just a few lines.
(Cho.:) I'm gonna love you one more time,
And give you a chance to be true.
If you leave me again, we'll no longer be friends,
For I'm tired of playing hide-and-seek with you.
After searching this wide world all over,
I'm surprised to have found you again.
I had made up my mind to forget you,
But my heart was too broken to mend.
Once you hid in the arms of another,
But now you are trying to please.
From the cold empty world that he left you,
You are ready to come back to me.
