  • Lyrics: Oh my sweet darlin' Where'd you run to And where'd you put your dress You know the one dear I had made for you You're the one that I love the best I met your mama, I met your pa I met your maker down the hall They all went through you and let me in They won't make that mistake again Oh my sweet darlin' Where'd you run to And where'd you put your dress You know the one dear I had made for you You're the one that I love the best You broke the lock on your bedroom door Where you got out of the time before While I was sleeping you meant to leave But I won't let you live without me I didn't mean love, to hurt you there Or tear your new dress and pull your hair But you wouldn't listen and you ran in sin Now you won't leave me ever again No you won't leave me ever again Oh my sweet darlin' Where'd you run to And where'd you put your dress You know the one dear I had made for you You're the one that I love the best You're the one that I love the best You're the one that I love the best
