Recorded by Ted Daffan
Words and music by Ted Daffan and J. Davis
[D] You promised me love - that would never [G] die
That promise you [D] made - was only a [A] lie
Now [D] after you've gone - all alone I'll [G] pine
For all that I've [D] got - [A] is a Worried [D] Mind
I gave you a ring - I gave you a home
You promised me true - that you'd never roam
I bought you find clothes - and I bought you wine
But all that you gave - is a Worried Mind.
And when I was down - you just left me there
I needed you so - but you didn't care
You found a new love - and a home so fine
But all that I've got - is a Worried Mind.
