SHE CAN'T GIVE IT AWAY (Curly Putman / Sonny Throckmorton) Barbara Fairchild She stands there in the doorway of a cheap hotel And both have seen their days At one time Southern beauty fill 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 hands 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 hands But now she can't give it away Now she can't give it away (Contributed by Droplet99 - June 2006)
