Gold Watch and Chain

Gold Watch and Chain
(Carter Family)

Darling, how can I stay here without you
I have nothing to cheer my poor heart
This old world would seem sad, love, without you
Tell me now that we're never to part

   I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love
   I will pawn you my gold diamond ring
   I will pawn you this heart in my bosom
   Only say that you'll love me again

Take back all the gifts you have given
But a ring and a lock of your hair
And a card with your picture upon it
It's a face that is false, but is fair

Tell me why that you do not love me
Tell me why that your smile is not bright
Tell me why you have grown so cold-hearted
Is there no kiss for me, love, tonight
