Johnny Horton – I’m a One Woman Man Lyrics

If you told me that you love me I would feel so proud
If you let me hold you honey I’d holler out loud
I’ll never love another even if I can oh come to me baby I’m a one woman man
Won’t you let me baby just kinda hang around
I’ll always love you honey and I’ll never let you down
I’ll never love another even if I can oh come to me baby I’m a one woman man
[ guitar ]
I’d climb the highest mountain if it reached up to the sky
To prove that I love you I would jump off and fly
I’d even swim the ocean from shore to shore
To prove that I love you just a little bit more
Won’t you let me baby…
[ guitar ]
Won’t you let me baby…
