You gave so many things to remember you by
Like a heart full of emptiness like tears in my eye
When my heartaches all have gone
It will be because you gave me so much leaving alone

I've got everything I need to remember you
I've got all the things you gave me and you gave me quite a few
Like a heart full of emptiness like tears in my eyes
I got wall to wall of sadness I can walk on while I cry
You gave so many things...
[ banjo ]
Well I wish you hadn't given me this solitude
It's a gift that keeps on givin' after you've gone gone gone gone
When my heartaches all have gone
It will be because you gave me so much leaving alone
