Charley Pride – All I Have To Offer You (Is Me) Lyrics

Before you take another step there’s something you should know
About the years ahead and how they’ll be
You’ll be living in a world where roses hardly ever grow
Cause all I have to offer you is me
There’ll be no mansion waiting on the hill with crystal chandeliers
And there’ll be no fancy clothes for you to wear
Everything I have is standing here in front of you to see
All I have to offer you is me
[ steel ]
Sweetheart I’ll give you all my love in every way I can
But make sure that’s what you want while you’re still free
The only gold I have for you is in this wedding band
Cause all I have to offer you is me
There’ll be no mansion…
