I once had a love and oh I loved her very dearly She told me she loved me so I thought she spoke sincerely. But one day, away I found that she had flown And off to find that love of mine I set alone. (Chorus:) Looking high, high, high Looking low, low, low Wondering why, why, why Did she go, go, go? For if I, I, I don't find my love, I know I shall die, die, die 'cause I love her so. I journeyed across the sea I sought her with devotion Oh, where she could really be? I've not the slightest notion. But so bright the light of love within me shone I knew full well, what e'er befell, I must go on. Chorus Due east over desert sands Due west where grass is greener I asked in a dozen lands But none had ever seen her. It was clear, I fear, my quest was all in vain So I departed, sad at heart, for home again. Chorus But when I arrived, all brown and tanned by wind and weather You sure could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather. She stood there, so fair, and sweetly she confessed That she'd been wrong, and all along she'd loved me best. I'd looked high, high, high I'd looked low, low, low Wondering why, why, why Did she go, go, go? Now that I, I, I have found my love, I know till I die, die, die, I will love her so.
