B-Side Single Hank Locklin 1953
Locklin, a fledgling country star who had formed a backing band called the Rocky Mountain Boys, had recorded for a variety of small regional labels, including Gold Star and Royalty. Success didn’t come his way until he joined with Four Star Records, when 1949’s “The Same Sweet Girl” reached No. 8 on the Billboard country chart. However, it wasn’t until 1953 when he finally broke through to the top of the chart with “Let Me Be the One.” While sustained success didn’t come until the mid-1950s, “Let Me Be the One” paved the way for Locklin’s future successes at the Decca and RCA recording labels, where he became associated with such songs as “Why Baby Why,” “Geisha Girl,” “Send Me the Pillow That You Dream On” and “Please Help Me, I’m Falling.”

Hank Locklin – Let Me Be The One Lyrics

Let me be the one to walk with you when you want somebody to talk with you
Anything that makes you happy I wanna do oh darling let me be the one
Let me be the one who means the most the one you wanna love and call your own
And when you choose your partner I wanna be the choice oh please let me be the one
Let me be the one to sit with you
And when you want some lovin’ I’ll know just what to do
Lots of lots of huggin’ and a kiss or two you’ve gotta let me be the one
Let me be the one to take you out to your favorite places you have no doubt
And when the evening’s gone we’d kiss goodnight oh please let me be the one
Let me be the one to share with you all your little pleasures and sorrows too
In all kind of weather I wanna be with you oh please let me be one
Let me be the one to hold your hand when the preacher says do you take this man
All these happy thoughts will mean so much fun if you’d only let me be the one
