If I'd Only Met You First Recorded by Carl Butler Written by Hank Cochran and Carl Butler
C F Just like so many other men we hear about in song C G7 I wed the wrong girl just before the right one came along C F Though I was tied to someone else the day you came my way C G7 C But if I'd only met you first you'd be my own today
F C I knew I didn't love her on the day we said I do F C G7 But placed the ring upon her hand and promised to be true C F I thought someday I'd learn to care and so we made the vow C G7 C But if I'd only met you first things would be different now
F The one I hold in my heart now can never have my name C G7 Because the one I never loved would have to bare the shame C F To leave her now would break her heart and that's what makes me stay C G7 C But if I'd only met you first it wouldn't be this way
F C So now I'm doomed to live a lie because we met too late F C G7 She'll never set me free and so I can't ask you to wait C F If you should find another love I won't stand in your way C G7 C But if I'd only met you first you'd be my own today
