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'd get married in about one year's 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?

Goodbye baby
I'm feelin' so alone I'm movin' on
I ain't got no tall tale
Don't call me - I'll call you
See ya
