Their Complete Victor Recordings - 1932-1933 (CD) - If One Won't Another One Will lyrics

(A.P. Carter)

-Solo-

I went one Sunday evening my true love for to see
I asked her to marry and she would not answer me

-Solo-

The night has almost ended, it’s near the break of day
I'm waiting for an answer, oh what will you say

Kind Sir, if I must tell you, I choose the single life
I never thought it suited for me to be your wife

-Solo-

I'll take this for your answer and for yourself provide
I have another lover and you must be denied

-Solo-

In a course of six weeks later, this lady's mind did change
She wrote me a letter, kind Sir, I feel ashamed

-Solo-

I feel as though I’ve slighted you, I cannot hear you mourn
So here's my heart, come take it and claim it as your own

-Solo-

I wrote her back an answer, I sent it back in speed
I only once did love you, I loved you, Dear, indeed

-Solo-

But since my mind has changed me, I seek another way
Upon some pretty fair maiden, my heart will have its way

-Solo-

Upon some pretty fair maiden, my heart shall have its fill
This world is wide and lonely, if one won’t, another one will
