Lyrics
Jerry Jeff Walker

For your birthday, I thought that I'd give you
A little something from me
A gift you would treasure, something you'd always keep
At first I thought maybe some jewelry
With lots of diamonds or gold
But any man with deep pockets can go and buy one of those

Chorus:
No, I wanted something, something that money can't buy
A gift I could give you, and it would last for all time
So I wrote you this love song, one I hoped that you'd like
And I've wrapped it in a promise, to love you all of my life

These days it's so easy to buy things, no effort needed at all
Anything you desire, all you do is make a call
But I wonder how often it's happened, once you've brought it home
That shiny new trinket now leaves you cold and alone

Chorus:
So I wanted something, something your money can't buy
A gift I could give you that would last for all time
So I wrote you this love song, one I hoped that you like
Then I wrapped it in a promise, to love you all of my life
Yes I promise I'll love you, for the rest of my life
