I gave you a diamond ring, you won't wear
It's a nine thousand dollar thing, you don't care
I set up a wedding date, you couldn't make it
You said all the love we made, you were just faking

But girl, you know, what hurts me the most
Is I gave all my love to you, all you ever give me
All you ever give me, all you ever give me is the blues
Is the blues

I gave you my Cadillac keys, you don't drive
I hired you a limousine, you won't ride
Bought you the house on the hill, you hate the view
Even wrote you into my will, gave you something to look forward to

But girl, you know, what hurts me the most
Is I gave all my love to you
All you ever give me
All you ever give me
All you ever give me is the blues
Nothing but the blues

I've tried and tried, but I'm mystified
I've done all that I can do, I've given you my best
You put me to the test
All you ever give me
All you ever give me
All you ever give me is the blues
Nothing but the blues

But girl, you know, what hurts me the most
Is I gave all my love to you
All you ever give me
All you ever give me
All you ever gave me was the blues
All you ever gave me
All you ever gave me
All you ever gave me
All you ever gave me was the blues
Nothing but the blues
