A musician friend of mine sings this song, which he got from a friend in America. I have lost contact with him, but would like the words of the song-

Any suggestions

It may help to have a little more information.

Sounds like an Andrew Calhoun song. (which I don't happen to like.)

Sorry if the above sounded unduly negative: I meant I don't think this particular song is his best work.

"I wrote this for my first wife, Laurie. She wasn't that impressed, until she heard the recorded version. "I like it with the harmonica." Sigh.

AIN'T NO ONE
(Andrew Calhoun)

Chorus:
Ain't no one could love you like I love you
Ain't no one could love you like I do
Ain't no one could love you like I love you
Ain't no one could love you like I do

I have seen the morning and the mountain
I have seen the flowers and the sea
Seen the sun going over the ocean
Seen you lying down by me

Chorus

You have seen tomorrow in your mother
You've seen pain in your father's hand
You went searching for another
Crying, "come, and understand."

Chorus

If I had a million dollars
Take you to the Riviera and races and the zoo
If I had a million dollars
It still wouldn't make any difference to you

Chorus

Miles from the crying border
Miles from the starving sea
Stands a house of brick and mortar
I have built for you and me
I love you more than my father and my mother
Seen my destiny in your eye
I love you more than my sister and my brother
I love you more than the time gone by

Chorus"
