Conway Twitty – I Did The Best I Could lyrics

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 sad
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 I've 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...
