Now And Then There's A Fool Such As I
Tommy Edwards Lyrics


(Now and then there's a fool such as I)
Pardon me, if I'm sentimental
When we say goodbye
Don't be angry with me should I cry
When you're gone, yet I'll dream
A little dream as years go by
Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you
You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through
I'm a fool, but I'll love you dear
Until the day I die
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I
Now and then there's a fool such as I

THIS is the way this beautiful, heartbreaking song should be sung.

I agree Darryl, I've known for multiple decades Edwards did a version and just today March 20th, 2020 I heard it. And it was heartbreaking and beautiful exactly how you described. The only two versions I ever listened to was Hank Snows and Elvis' so naturally I couldn't imagine someone else could do it better, guess I might have been wrong. Because if this version isn't better it's just as good as Snows and Elvis'.

Tried in vain to find another song written by Bill Trader. Cannot find anything. With all the folks who think Hank Snow wrote this song, Trader's not even getting his due for this composition.

@the78prof , thank you.

Here are the 12 self-penned songs on Bill Trader's album: (side one) "Cherokee Call," "A Song to Sing," "Hopeless One," "Don't Wake Me Now," "How Can I Be So Wrong?" and "Don't Turn Around" (side two) "A Fool Such As I," "Castaway," "I'll Never Fear Tomorrow," "Left-Over Love," "Veil of Tears" and "Bitter Harvest." The only title - other than "A Fool Such As I" - which rings a bell is "Cherokee Call." I remember Perry Como singing it on one of his Christmas specials.

@Darryl C Preston, apparently he - Bill - had out an album entitled "Bill Trader Sings His Songs," which suggests he had more than the one we hear here. This is a link to a discussion about the composition of this song: http://www.searchingforagem.com/Misc/Fool.htm

Just found out; he did exist [died in 2003]. Still no other songs though, but there must be some.
