ONE NIGHT aka ONE NIGHT (OF SIN) aka ONE NIGHT (WITH YOU) (Dave Bartholomew / Anita Steiman / Earl King) Smiley Lewis - 1956 Elvis Presley - 1957 Rikki Henderson - 1959 Fats Domino - 1961 Pat Boone - 1963 Shakin' Stevens - 1972 Mud - 1975 Ronnie McDowell - 1978 Ral Donner - 1979 José Feliciano - 1983 Joe Cocker 1989 Billy Ray Cyrus - 1994 Also recorded by: Wanda Jackson; Cliff Richard; Big Fat Snake & The TCB Band; Pat Boone; Tami Lynn; Duffy Power; Brian Ferry; Donna Loren; Orion; Jimmy Riley & SWAT ........ and several others. NB: This song was originally written with the lyric "One Night Of Sin" and was a minor hit for Smiley Lewis in 1956. The following year, Elvis Presley recorded it, but the lyrics were considered to be too risqué for the mass market at the time. So, with a few lyric changes, it was quickly re-recorded as "One Night With You". ONE NIGHT (OF SIN) as recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY, 18th January 1957: One night of sin Is what I'm now payin' for The things I did and I saw Would make the earth stand still Don't call my name It makes me feel so ashamed I lost my sweet helpin' hand I got myself to blame Always lived very quiet life Ain't never did no wrong Now I know that very quiet life Has caused me nothin' but harm One night of sin Is what I'm now payin' for The things I did and I saw Would make the earth stand still Always lived very quiet life Ain't never did no wrong But now I know that very quiet life Has caused me nothin' but harm One night of sin Is what I'm now payin' for The things I did and I saw Would make the earth stand still ******************** ONE NIGHT (WITH YOU) as recorded by ELVIS PRESLEY, 23rd February 1957: One night with you Is what I'm now praying for The things that we two could plan Would make my dreams come true Just call my name And I'll be right by your side I want your sweet helping hand My loves too strong to hide Always lived very quiet life I ain't never did no wrong Now I know that life without you Has been too lonely too long One night with you Is what I'm now praying for The things that we two could plan Would make my dreams come true Always lived very quiet life I ain't never did no wrong Now I know that life without you Has been too lonely too long One night with you Is what I'm now praying for The things that we two could plan Would make my dreams come true (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
