left a darling down in Georgia
lost a girl to Tennessee
now I'm going' out to California
where somebody cares for me
hey there - hey there darlin'
don't break too many hearts
keep 'em at a distance
and you keep 'em all guessing
you got a nice hand
but never show your cards
double bourbon on the rocks on the weekend
four or five on Saturday night
you better watch it with the looks you're stealing
them boys can't treat you right
hey there - hey there darlin'
don't break too many hearts
keep 'em at a distance
and you keep 'em all guessing
you got a nice hand
but never show your cards
when I get to California
kiss goodbye this southern heat
the California stars are my girls
for all the night, for all the night
drank away my girl in Texas
ended up in new Orleans
all the women down there knew better
than to mess around with me
hey there - hey there darlin'
don't break too many hearts
keep 'em at a distance
and you keep 'em all guessing
you got a nice hand
but never show your cards
when I get to California
kiss goodbye this southern heat
the California stars are my girls
for all the night, for all the night
hey there - hey there darlin'
don't break too many hearts
keep 'em at a distance
and you keep 'em all guessing
you got a nice hand
but never show your cards
hey there - hey there darlin'
don't break too many hearts
keep 'em at a distance
and you keep 'em all guessing
don't break too many hearts
don't break too many hearts
Don't break too many hearts
