Someone else's arms will hold you, my darling baby girl
I'll never get to see the child I've brought into this world
Because I made one mistake folks say that I'm bad
But they just don't understand the way I loved your dad
I thought your daddy loved me, I surely thought he did
And so I gave him all my love and he said we would wed
But I guess he must chenged his mind cause he left town one day
When he found out about you he just up and went away
In this home so far away from home I leave my heart today
Cause home where the heart is and with you my heart will stay
Because I love you so much I can't make you pay
I'm doing this for your sake, I'm giving you away
