I can remember this much...

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 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 stopped looking for you.

...that's where my memory gives out...I don't think I've heard this song since the '60's. I think there's just one more verse anyway.

I've got it on the Outward Bound album. I'll find some way of playing it to get the lyrics, if no-one else comes up with them.

I can do the lyrics, I'm pretty good with lyrics. But I'm afraid that the chords would take me a long time and that even then I wouldn't get them quite right. For anyone who is interested I will listen to the album several times and post the lyrics later today.

I've been playing it for 35 years as a three chord song in D, nothing fancy or complicated. (well actually years ago I used to do it in E, but the high notes aren't as easy as they once were).

Thanks rich r, I had almost worked it out to that point.

I have an "A" at the end of this line?

Much as above, but I would agree about the A in the line above: also, I would do a quick A/D on "on - ly" and "lone - ly" after the G. Try It! Tattie B

Yah, the "A" belongs there. I'm not too good at playing air guitar while I try to write down chords. You can also throw a Bm in the middle of that line if you want to vary the D. A7's work fine also. I used the 7ths all the time when I used to sing it in E, because a B7 is a lot easier for me to play than a B

Subject: Lyr Add: ONE TIME AND ONE TIME ONLY (Tom Paxton)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 10 Oct 08 - 03:13 PM

These lyrics were posted in a BS thread where they're not likely to be found:


ONE TIME AND ONE TIME ONLY
(Tom Paxton)

1. 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.

CHORUS: 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 had been the wrong time
Until you came to me.

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

3. 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.


[Recorded by Tom Paxton on "Outward Bound" (1966), "I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound" (1999), and "Forever Changing: The Golden Age of Elektra 1963-1973" (2007); and by The Mitchell Trio on "That's the Way It's Gonna Be/Violets of Dawn" (2003).]

Threelegsoman is a great resource. Some incredible effort goes into this site. If you were looking just for chords and lyrics this is your place. But there is some documentationand history worth the read as well.
