I Gave My Love A Diamond Lyrics

I gave my love a diamond, a ten cent stone
i gave her lonely teardrops and nights alone
i gave my love a promise that had no truth
what good is a promise without no truth?
I gave my love a fortune in silver and gold
i gave it to her lie, by lie, by lie, by lie that i had told
i gave my love a story that had no end
what good is a story that's got no end?
tell me
I wrote her that we would marry
in about, a-one years time
i wrote her in a boxcar on the memphis line
i sent my love a letter without no stamp, ha
and what good is a letter without no stamp?
Good-bye baby
i'm feelin' so alone
i'm movin' on
i ain't got no small change
and don't call me, i'll call you
see ya!
