THE LOVING GIFT
DUET WITH DOTTIE WEST
Writer Kris Kristofferson
'72 Combine Music

You gave me a blanket to keep me from the cold you gave me a song I learn to sing
You showed me some beauty through the windows of your soul
And you showed me a world I've never seen
Each giving to the other loving gift went it away
We spent the precious time we knew was borrowed
Cause you gave me the courage to live with yesterday and you gave me tomorrow
You brought me a candle to light my way to bed
You erased those shadows I'd been seeing
You brought me a pillow to rest my weary head
You taught me a gentle way of dreaming
And even if you leave me I'll be richer when you go
I'm richer with the loving gift you gave me
Cause you gave me a blanket to keep me from the cold and you gave me a baby

Songwriters
Kristofferson, Kris
