WHO CAN I COUNT ON
(Masters)
JEWEL AKENS & EDDIE DANIELS (SILVER 1004, 1960)

Who can I count on if I can't count on you
I never counted on you makin' me blue
They say you're runnin' 'round with somebody new
Who can I count on if I can't count on you

I thought I held the brassily key to heaven
Your love was sweet and gentle at the start
But now I feel that I can't go on livin'
If livin' means that we must live apart

Who can I count on if I can't count on you
There goes my happiness and here come the blues
I can't convince myself that we're really through
Who can I count on if I can't count on you

Ah, the door to happiness was almost open
Just one more step or two, I'd walk right in
Then all at once the vows you made were broken
The door to happiness was closed again
