You Are the Only One

-Artist: Rick Nelson
-peak Billboard position # 25 in 1960-61
-Words and Music by Thomas Baker Knight

You are the only one
My one and only one
Together we've had a lot of fun
But what'll I do if you leave me?

If someone else should come along
And take your love from me
Darlin', you could never know
How lonely I would be


I tried to be the kinda guy
You'd wanna call your own
So please don't go and throw away
The truest love you've known


What'll I do if you ever take your love from me?
'cause in your arms is where I always wanna be

If you should ever go away
My eyes would fill with tears
And the heartaches I would feel
Would last a thousand years


What'll I do if you leave me?
What'll I do if you leave me?

What'll I do if you leave me?
What'll I do if you leave me?
