(Schroeder/ DeMetrius/ Blair/ Peppers )

Informação:
I Was the One foi escrita por Aaron Schroeder, Claude DeMetrius, Hal Blair e Bill Pepper e gravada pela primeira vez por Elvis em 11 de janeiro de 1956, nos estúdios da RCA, em Nashville. Gorden Stocker, Ben Speer e Brock Speer disponibilizaram apoio vocal. Emparelhada com Heartbreak Hotel, I Was the One foi o primeiro lançamento da RCA de material novo de Elvis. O single teve uma permanência de 16 semanas na tabela Top 100 da Billboard, chegando ao 23º lugar e alcançando o 11º lugar na tabela Country Disc Jockey. Alcançaram-se vendas superiores a um milhão de exemplares. Elvis cantou I Was The One na sua quarta apresentação no Stage Show (18 de fevereiro de 1956) e durante a sua última apresentação no Louisiana Hayride (16 de dezembro de 1956).


Letra:

I was the one who taught her to kiss

The way that she kisses you now
And you know the way that she touches your cheek
I taught her how

I was the one who taught her to cry
When she wants you under her spell
The sight of her tears drives you out of your mind
I taught her so well

1. And then one day
I had my love as perfect as could be
She lived, she loved, she laughed, she cried,
And it was all for me

2. I'll never know who taught her to lie
Now that it's over and done
Who learned the lesson when she broke my heart?
I was the one

1. 2. (repete)
