Lyrics ONE MORE HOUR
AND I'LL BE HOME,
CLOSE MY EYES
AND REST MY BONES.
CAN'T BE MORE
THAN A MILE OR SO
FROM CINCINNATI, OHIO.
CINCINNATI, OHIO.

CINCINNATI
WHERE THE RIVER WINDS
ACROSS THE MASON
AND THE DIXON LINE.
HEAVEN WAITS FOR ME
I KNOW,
IN CINCINNATI, OHIO.
CINCINNATI, OHIO

I GUESS THE MEMORIES
GOT TOO STRONG,
GRABBED ME
BY THE HEARTSTRINGS
AND PULLED ME HOME.
I GOT TO THINKING
'BOUT SOME FRIENDS
I KNOW,
IN CINCINNATI, OHIO.
CINCINNATI, OHIO.

I WALKED HALFWAY
FROM LOUISVILLE,
NOW SHE SLEEPS
AT THE FOOT
OF A HILL.
SHINING LIKE A JEWEL
IN THE VALLEY BELOW,
CINCINNATI, OHIO.
CINCINNATI, OHIO.

Lyrics verse 1:
IF IT'S TRUE
WHAT YOU SAY
IN YOUR LETTER.
IF YOUR SWEET LOVE
FOR ME
IS REALLY GONE.
IF YOU'VE FOUND
SOMEONE ELSE
YOU LOVE BETTER.
PACK YOUR BAG,
SHAKE MY HAND
AND MOVE ALONG.

Chorus:
EASY COME, EASY GO,
I FOUND OUT
A LONG TIME AGO.
AIN'T NO FUTURE
IN THE PAST,
BROKEN HEARTS
AND ALL THAT JAZZ.
NO TEARS OF MINE
ARE GONNA FLOW
I'LL HAVE ANOTHER LOVE
TOMORROW,
EASY COME, EASY GO.

verse 2:
SO YOU TOOK MY PHOTOGRAPH
FROM YOUR POCKET,
AND REPLACED IT
WITH THE ONE
YOU LOVE THE BEST.
SO NOW GIVE ME
BACK MY RING
AND I'LL GO HOCK IT.
WHAT'S ONE LITTLE DIAMOND
MORE OR LESS?

Chorus:
EASY COME, EASY GO,
I FOUND OUT
A LONG TIME AGO.
AIN'T NO FUTURE
IN THE PAST,
BROKEN HEARTS
AND ALL THAT JAZZ.
NO TEARS OF MINE
ARE GONNA FLOW
I'LL HAVE ANOTHER LOVE
TOMORROW,
EASY COME, EASY GO.

Lyrics verse 1:
IT WAS LATE
AND I WAS SLEEPING
WHEN HE CALLED
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
MUCH HE SAID AT ALL.
JUST THAT
HE WAS LEAVING TOWN
AND MUST
GET OFF THE PHONE
I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHEN HE TOLD ME
HE'D BE HOME.

Chorus:
DID HE SAY,
SUNDAY NOON
OR ONE DAY SOON?
I THINK HE LEFT
WITH DAN
BUT WHAT
IF HE SAID ANN?
DID THEY GO
TO MEET A TRAIN?
OR LEAVE
TO CATCH A PLANE?
I CAN'T REMEMBER,
BUT I CAN'T FORGET
HE'S GONE.

verse 2:
SO I TELEPHONED
HIS HOUSE
AND ASKED HIS MOM
IF SHE KNEW WHERE
HER LITTLE BOY
HAD GONE.
I KNOW
SHE MUST HAVE TOLD ME,
AND I HEARD HER
LOUD AND CLEAR
BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER
ANYTHING BUT TEARS.

Chorus:
DID SHE SAY,
FISHING TRIP,
OR, HE GAVE YOU
THE SLIP?
IS HE OFF
TO SEE THE WORLD
OR SEE ANOTHER GIRL?
DID SHE SAY,
HE TOOK THE CAR,
OR, WHAT A FOOL
YOU ARE?
I CAN'T REMEMBER,
BUT I CAN'T FORGET
HE'S GONE.

Lyrics verse 1:
WHEN YOU FOUND
SOMEBODY NEW,
I THOUGHT
I NEVER WOULD
FORGET YOU
FOR I THOUGHT
THEN I NEVER COULD
BUT TIME HAS TAKEN
ALL THE PAIN AWAY,
UNTIL NOW
I'M DOWN TO HURTIN'
ONCE A DAY.

Chorus:
ONCE A DAY
ALL DAY LONG,
AND ONCE A NIGHT
FROM DUSK
TILL DAWN
THE ONLY TIME
I WISH
YOU WEREN'T GONE,
IS ONCE A DAY,
EV'RY DAY,
ALL DAY LONG.

verse 2:
I'M SO GLAD
I'M NOT LIKE A GIRL
I KNEW ONE TIME:
SHE LOST
THE ONE SHE LOVED
AND SLOWLY
LOST HER MIND.
SHE SAT AROUND
AND CRIED
HER LIFE AWAY.
LUCKY ME,
I'M ONLY CRYIN'
ONCE A DAY.

Chorus:
ONCE A DAY
ALL DAY LONG,
AND ONCE A NIGHT
FROM DUSK
TILL DAWN
THE ONLY TIME
I WISH
YOU WEREN'T GONE,
IS ONCE A DAY,
EV'RY DAY,
ALL DAY LONG.

Lyrics SURELY
I'M STILL ON YOUR MIND,
JUST A LITTLE BIT,
SURELY
THERE'S A MEM'RY
YOU CAN'T FORGET.
HOW COULD LOVE,
SO STRONG,
SUDDENLY JUST FADE
AND DIE?
THERE MUST BE
A REASON WHY,
DARLING,
SURELY.

COULDN'T FIND THE WAY
TO MAKE YOU LOVE ME,
THO' I TRIED EV'RYTHING
I KNEW HOW,
AND I JUST
CAN'T WALK AWAY
WITH A MEM'RY,
WHEN I LOVE YOU
MORE THAN EVER
RIGHT NOW.

SURELY
I'M STILL ON YOUR MIND,
JUST A LITTLE BIT,
SURELY
THERE'S A MEM'RY
YOU CAN'T FORGET.
HOW COULD LOVE,
SO STRONG,
SUDDENLY JUST FADE
AND DIE?
THERE MUST BE
A REASON WHY,
DARLING,
SURELY.

Lyrics verse 1:
IN YOUR HASTE
YOU LEFT
AND SAID
YOU'D BE RETURNING
IN MY SORROW
I FORGOT
TO ASK YOU WHEN.
IN MY LONELY ROOM
I SIT
AND COUNT THE HOURS.
EV'RY MINUTE
HOPING I'LL LOOK UP
AND YOU'LL COME
WALKING IN.

Chorus:
FOR THEN AND ONLY THEN
WILL I STOP CRYING,
AND THIS ACHING,
BREAKING HEART OF MINE
WILL MEND
NOT UNTIL I FEEL
YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
WILL I BE HAPPY,
AND I LIVE FOR
THEN AND ONLY THEN.

verse 2:
ALL THAT'S LEFT
INSIDE MY HEART
IS JUST AN ECHO
AND THE TINY THREAD
OF HOPE
TO WHICH I CLING
BUT IF I KEEP
HOLDING ON
MAYBE SOMEDAY
YOU'LL REMEMBER
WHERE YOU LEFT ME
AND COME BACK
FOR ME AGAIN.

Chorus:
FOR THEN AND ONLY THEN
WILL I STOP CRYING,
AND THIS ACHING,
BREAKING HEART OF MINE
WILL MEND
NOT UNTIL I FEEL
YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
WILL I BE HAPPY,
AND I LIVE FOR
THEN AND ONLY THEN.

Lyrics HE BOUGHT IT FOR MY BIRTHDAY,
JUST ONE SHORT YEAR AGO,
THIS TINY BLUE TRANSISTOR RADIO.
WE STAYED UP LATE
AND LISTENED TO THE MUSIC
SOFT AND LOW
ON THE TINY BLUE TRANSISTOR RADIO.
AND THE MAN
AT THE RADIO STATION
MADE A SPECIAL DEDICATION,
TO JIMMY AND THE GIRL
THAT HE LOVES SO.
WE KISSED EACH OTHER
GENTLY
AS WE LISTENED
SO INTENTLY
TO THE TINY BLUE TRANSISTOR RADIO.

AND NOW
JUST ONE YEAR LATER
HIS LOVE FOR ME IS GONE.
HE'S OUT TONIGHT
WITH HIS NEW LOVE
I KNOW,
AND I JUST HEARD THEM PLAYING
THE ONE WE CALLED OUR SONG
ON THE TINY BLUE TRANSISTOR RADIO.
AND THE MAN
AT THE RADIO STATION
MADE A SPECIAL DEDICATION,
TO JIMMY AND THE GIRL
THAT HE LOVES SO.
HER HAPPY EYES
ARE GLISTENING
WHILE MY SAD HEART
IS LISTENING
TO THE TINY BLUE TRANSISTOR RADIO.
