i gave my love a cherry
hopin maybe it would make her sweet
she crushed it up right there inside my pocket
just before she threw me on the street

i gave my love a dollar
thought she’d buy some wine or something pink
she hopped on the next train bound for Memphis
that’s what i get for lettin myself think

i gave my love a weekend
to show me something i can’t live without
she turned round & caught me for a lifetime
taught me what sweet pain is all about
