I Did The Best I Could (with What I Had) Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

(And I did the best I could with what I had)
When I first met you I promised you the world
And it was all because you were my favorite girl
Pretty things like diamond rings and all the things you never had
But I did the best I could with what I had
I know you won't need a mansion on the hill a big fine car a schauffer at the wheel
But time passed on and things went wrong and all you ever got was said
But I did the best I could with what I had
And all I had was all the love in the world for one girl
And the promise to try hard someway to get ahead
But the promises I made are broken and betrayed
But I did the best I could with what I had yes I did the best I could with what I had
