  • She was stormin' through the house that day
    And I could tell she was leavin'
    And I thought, "Aw, she'll be back"
    'Til she turned around and pointed at the wall and said

    "That picture from our honeymoon
    That night in 'Frisco Bay
    Just give it away"
    She said, "Give it away"

    "And that big four poster king sized bed
    Where so much love was made
    Just give it away"
    She said, "Just give it away"

    Just give it away
    There ain't nothing in this house worth fightin' over
    Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
    So just give it away

    So I tried to move on
    But I found that each woman I held
    Just reminded me of that day, hmm

    When that front door swung wide open
    She flung her diamond ring
    Said, "Give it away
    Just give it away"

    And I said, "Now honey
    Don't you even want your half of everything?"
    She said, "Give it away
    Just give it away"

    Just give it away
    There ain't nothing in this house worth fightin' over
    Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
    So just give it away

    So, I'm still right here where she left me
    Along with all the other things
    She don't care about anymore, hmm

    Like that picture from our honeymoon
    That night in 'Frisco Bay
    She said, "Give it away"
    Well, I can't give it away
    That big four poster king sized bed
    Where all our love was made
    She said, "Give it away"
    Well, I can't give it away

    I've got a furnished house
    A diamond ring
    And a lonely, broken heart
    Full of love
    And I can't even give it away Writer/s: Bill Anderson, Buddy Cannon, Jamey Johnson
