I NEVER HAD THE ONE THAT I WANTED
Recorded by: Ernest Tubb
Writers: Jimmie Louis, Claude Gray & Sheb Wooley
[D] I never had the one that I [G] wanted
Never [A] wanted the one that I [D] had
For the one that I had was a [G] good girl
And the [A] one that I wanted was [D] bad.
[D] They say that the [G] grass always looks [D] greener
And I guess that's the nature of a [A] man
To let [D] pashion have its' way
Never [G] thinkin' what he'll pay
And it's [A] hard oh, aint it hard to under-[D] stand.
What makes a man want to flirt with danger
Like a child that's playin' with a fire
Must the most lucious peach, be always out of reach
And the things you can't 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.
