Kitty Wells — Only One I Ever Loved I Lost lyrics

When I lost your love dear I lost my everything
The sunshine from my life has disappeared
The night we said our last goodbye I wished you happiness
Then I walked away so darkness would hide my tears.

Without the face of the loved one this world's a lonesome place
True love is smarty cheap at any call
I'm doin' to be a failure though the future brings wealth and fame
For the only one I ever loved I lost.

If I find fame and fortune what good would get to me
I couldn't fool my heart it knows me best
There's one love in every lifetime mine belongs to you
And that means more to me than all the rest.

Without the face of the loved one this world's a lonesome place
True love is smarty cheap at any call
I'm doin' to be a failure though the future brings wealth and fame
For the only one I ever loved I lost...
