I Got What It Takes But It Breaks My Heart To Give It Away

[Intro]
Yes, yes, yes
My best gal quit me and I went back and got my diamond ring [Verse]
Now, I've got what it takes, it breaks my heart
To give it away, ain't going to give it away
Now babe, the stuff I've got is the stuff that makes
The fiddlers play, makes the fiddlers play
I saved it up since the Lord knows when
I ain't playin' Santa Claus for any you men
I've had it so long, I hate to lose it
'Cause ever get broke, I'll be able to use it
Now this little thing is what the whole wide world
Is dyin' to get, Lord, dyin' to get
This wise baby, she ain't going to part from it yet
Now when you're layin' in the jail with your head in your palms
And then you realize your sweet mama's charms
I've got what it takes, it breaks my heart
I ain't a-going to give it away, I mean
I ain't a-going to give it away[Instrumental Break][Verse]
Now, I've got what it takes, it breaks my heart
To give it away, ain't going to give it away
Now babe, the stuff I've got is the stuff that makes
The fiddlers play, the fiddlers play
I saved it up since the Lord knows when
I ain't playin' Santa Claus for any you men
I've had it so long, I hate to lose it
'Cause ever get broke, I'll be able to use it
Now this little thing is what the whole wide world
Is dyin' to get, Lord, dyin' to get
This wise baby, she ain't going to part from it yet
Now when you're layin' in the jail with your head in your palms
And then you realize your sweet mama's charms
I've got what it takes, it breaks my heart
I ain't a-going to give it away, I mean
I ain't a-going to give it away
