Ernest Tubb – I Never Had The One I Wanted lyrics

I never had the one that I wanted never wanted the one that I had
For the one that I had was a good girl and the one that I want it was bad

They say that the grass always looks greener and I guess that's the nature of a man
To let pashion have it's way never thinking what he'll pay
And it's hard to win and hard to understand
I never had the one that I wanted...
[ steel ]
What makes a man want to flirt with danger like a child that's playing with a fire
Must a mouse lost it's cage be always out of reach
And the things that you can have you desire
I never had the one that I wanted never wanted the one that I had
If I ever get back to the good girl I will never go back to the bad
