He was always the toughest kid
But he never meant no harm
But lookin' back, I can see his fate
Was tattooed on his arm

Walkin' through the courtyard
Always there to be seen
He and little Janie
Together they were the king and queen

He was the only one who ever really knew
He was the only one, what can we do?
He was the only one, he always showed us how
He was the only one, where is he now?

Three years later at the bus stop
I know I'll never forget
He looked smaller and real wasted
As he bummed a cigarette

And I asked him what he'd been doin'
And how's little Janie anyway
Seems he was drunk, they had a fight
Janie got hurt and they took him away

He was the only one who ever really knew
He was the only one, what can we do?
He was the only one, he always showed us how
He was the only one, where is he now?

I can still see him standin' there, just like yesterday
Leanin' on a '56, givin' his secrets away
Is it any wonder? I feel a little lonely
He's not just the only one, he's the one and only

I heard about the accident
There's not much left to say
He wandered out in the middle of the freeway
It must have happened right away

And I thought about, what a shame it was
Now that it's all said and done
And it may sound strange
But even now, he's still the only one

He was the only one who ever really knew
He was the only one, what can we do?
He was the only one, he always showed us how
He was the only one, where is he now?

He was the only one who ever really knew
He was the only one, what can we do?
He was the only one, he always showed us how
He was the only one, where is he now?
