The Giving And The Taking Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I keep on a-giving
And I took all the taking

I gave all my love to you
And I took all your hurt
I treated you so good
But you treated me like dirt
They say love is give and take
Now my poor heart is breaking

I keep on a-giving
And I took all the taking

I always gave you everything
That I knew how to give
You always took advantage of me
You knew I would forgive
I treated you too good for my own good
Now I'm alone and left forsaken

I keep on a-giving
And I took all the taking

The giving and the taking
Has caused my heart to break
I've given all that I can give
And I have taken all that I can take

The giving and the taking
Has caused my heart to break
I've given all that I can give
And I have taken all that I can take

Songwriters
Bill Owens;Dolly Parton
