Jimmy Lafave - I Threw It All Away
G Em C G
I once held her in my arms,
G Em C D
She promised me she'd always stay.
But I was a fool
G G/F#m C
I treated her cruel
G D G
You know I threw it all away.
Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand,
And rivers that ran through ev'ry day.
I must have been mad,
I didn't realize what I had,
Until I threw it all away.
C D G G/F#m Em
You see love is all there is, Love makes the world go 'round,
C D Em
Love and only love, it never will be denied.
No matter what you think about it
G G/F#m Em
Your never gonna live without it.
Take a tip from me you know I've tried
So if you find someone that gives you all of her love,
Take it to your heart, don't let it stray,
For one thing that's certain,
Your gonna wind up hurtin',
If you go and you throw it all away
Cause I will stay here in my heart
She promised me she'd always stay
I must have been mad
I didn't realize what I had
I went and I threw it all away
You know I threw it all away
And I went and I just threw it all away
