Love em and leave em, kiss em and grieve em
That used to be my motto so high
Till my Sophronie left me so lonely
Now there's teardrops in my eyes

My Sophronie's from Kentucky, she's found another man
Can't even kiss her, can't even hold her hand
Oh when we used to love beneath the stars up in the sky
But now I'm just a hotshot with a teardrop in my eye

Love em and leave em, kiss em and grieve em
That used to be my motto so high
Till my Sophronie left me so lonely
Now there's teardrops in my eyes

Till Gabriel blows his bugle, I'll be lovin that sweet
Girl
She means more to me than the whole wide world

I used to be a killer with the women me oh, my
But now I'm just a hot shot with a teadrop in my eye

Love em and leave em, kiss em and grieve em
That used to be my motto so high
Till my Sophronie left me so lonely
Now there's teardrops in my eyes

I used to slay the pretty girls from Maine to Alabam
Until I met Sophronie and then she let me down
I seen so many pretty eyes and filled with bitter tears
Find em, forget em, but now I have my fears

Love em and leave em, kiss em and grieve em
That used to be my motto so high
Till my Sophronie left me so lonely
Now there's teardrops in my eyes
