Kitty Wells – I Gave My Wedding Dress Away lyrics

Tomorrow was to be my wedding day
But I gave my wedding dress away
Another will be holding my bouquet
So I gave my wedding dress away.

My baby sister wanted him and so she took my place
It's worth a broken heart to see the smile upon her face
I've cared for her since mother went away
So I gave my wedding dress away.

Everything I ever wanted she always wanted too
And maybe giving in to her was not the thing to do
I always let her have her way perhaps I wasn't strong
But I was all she had to turn to when anything went wrong.

She's all I had to live for she's all the joy I ever had
And though she's hurt me many times she really isn't bad
I saw the love light in her eyes the day she met my Jim
Then I knew that he belonged to her and she belonged to him.

If I could win him back again our love would be divine
But I could never break her heart the way that she broke mine
I'll worship him until my dying day
But I gave my wedding dress away...
