She Cant Give It Away

Song Author Curly Putman og Sonny Throckmorton Performer: Barbra Fairchild Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]She stands there in the doorway
Of a [C]cheap hotel and [D7]both have seen their [G]day  
Onetime southern [G7]beauty filled her [C]eyes
But [D7]now there's just a [G]trace

Some[D7]times for almost nothing
She offers her love to passers [G]by  
She's an [C]old and fading [Am]sunset
That [D7]once lit up the whole Savannah [G]sky  

It's still [C]there upon her lips
In the [G]movement of her hips
And [D7]though she's twenty years past a [G]lady
Her love [C]once was in demand
It [G]bought diamonds for her hand
But [C]now she can't [D7]give it [G]away


In a big Chicago mansion
Lies a [C]man with a [D7]woman he don't [G]love
But his thoughts go back to a [G7]pretty Georgia [C]girl
When [D7]all he had was not [G]enough

He [D7]remembers all the good times
And the pleasures she gave him in the [G]night
[C]God he loved that [Am]woman
That [D7]once lit up the whole Savannah [G]sky  

It's still [C]there upon her lips
In the [G]movement of her hips
And [D7]though she's twenty years past a [G]lady
Her love [C]once was in demand
It [G]bought diamonds for her hand
But [C]now she can't [D7]give it [G]away

[C]Now she can't [D7]give it [G]away


She stands there in the doorway
Of a cheap hotel and both have seen their day
Onetime southern beauty filled her eyes
But now there's just a trace

Sometimes for almost nothing
She offers her love to passers by
She's an old and fading sunset
That once lit up the whole Savannah sky

It's still there upon her lips
In the movement of her hips
And though she's twenty years past a lady
Her love once was in demand
It bought diamonds for her hand
But now she can't give it away

In a big Chicago mansion
Lies a man with a woman he don't love
But his thoughts go back to a pretty Georgia girl
When all he had was not enough

He remembers all the good times
And the pleasures she gave him in the night
God he loved that woman
That once lit up the whole Savannah sky

It's still there upon her lips
In the movement of her hips
And though she's twenty years past a lady
Her love once was in demand
It bought diamonds for her hand
But now she can't give it away

Now she can't give it away
