Then and Only Then
Connie Smith Lyrics


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
Every minute hopin' I'll look up and you'll come walkin' in

[Chorus:]
For then and only then will I stop crying
And this aching breaking heart of mind will mend
Not until I feel your arms around me
Will I be happy and I live for then and only then
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 some day
You'll remember where you left me and come back for me again
Repeat [Chorus:]

My little Bear Shannon Burns passed on to see her savior. She used to sing this song at karaoke. She has been gone 10 months and I have not stopped crying. I love you for eternity Shannon. Your Denny. Weldon Myrick working over that Emmons. Bill Anderson the writer. This is how women should sing country music.

Jim Johnson

We love you Connie

Duncan Heggie

One of the Best C&W singers of all times - Love her music

Melodias Y Recuerdos

"REAL" Country And Western Music the way it was PROUDLY done in the 1950's to the early 1970's. The so called Country(TRASH) Music being PUSHED today can't be compared to the treasures of yesteryear like this song.

As Eddie Stubbs would say, nothing but the honey. Are there any questions? Weldon Myrick on pedal steel. He played so much into the Connie Smith sound.

@Dell Donovan God bless for giving praise to the only one who determines who is gifted with this kind of talent, something not allowed in Trashville today.

Only Jesus could give you this talent. What a voice. 🎶
