Strait, George - Give It Away Lyrics

She was stormin' through the house that day
And I could tell she was leavin
And I thought, aw, she'll be back
'Til she turned around and pointed at the wall an said

That picture from our honeymoon
That night in Frisco Bay
Just give it away
She said, give it away
And that big four-poster king-size bed
Where so much love was made
Just give it away
She said, just give it away

Just give it away
There ain't nothin' in this house worth fightin' over
Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
So just give it away

So I tried to move on
But I found that each woman I held
Just reminded me of that day

When that front door swung wide open
She flung her diamond ring
Said, give it away
Just give it away
And I said, now, honey, don't you even want
Your half of everything
She said, give it away
Just give it away

Just give it away
There ain't nothin' in this house worth fightin' over
Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
So just give it away

[Instrumental interlude]

So I'm still right here where she left me
Along with all the other things
She don't care about anymore
Mmmm, like that picture from our honeymoon
That night in Frisco Bay
She said, give it away
Well, I can't give it away
And that big four-poster king-size bed
Where all our love was made
She said, give it away
Well, I can't give it away

I've got a furnished house, a diamond ring
And a lonely broken heart
Full of love and I can't even give it away

    There is an icon on my tablet that says something about the "BEST" George Strait songs , like he ever recorded a bad one .......... ROFLMBFAO . King George could NOT record a bad song if it was written on toilet paper with you know what for ink and recorded on a broken recording device .

  38. Beth Davis

  45. Margo Mason

    George is good, but he can't out sing Marty Robbins!

  46. Lance Gagne

    I was raised on country music (Good Song By The Way) since a young boy 60,s 70,s, 80,s till today.This is country music. (Not Good At Singing It Mind You but that's beside the point) Country music today needs to find there roots.. I know the young need there POP and RAP country today but.. Really Think. Country is build from roots right.... So maybe we should nurture those roots and bring back to life those country roots and start growing new crops...

  47. Theodore Skaff

    I've always said a big reason for George's success is his Ace in the Hole band. Listen to this a perfect song!

  48. Luiz Pedro Lazzari


  49. Sable Burden

    I remember my divorce. Walked away from everything. Money,cars,home,and still had to go to court,because she just didn't want to let go. Can't say I'll ever regret it.

  50. Jonny Crash

    Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of country, but I can listen to George Straight all day. Along with a few others like him. My sister on the other hand was a huge( still is) a country fan. She use to have George and Garth all over her wall 😅.
    Thankful, she was a huge fan, cuz my punk ass music fan wouldn't have appreciation for some of the great country musicians. 😉
    And of course older folks in my family

  80. Russell Bauridel

    Sometimes you gotta listen to old George Strait. He's definitely one of the best. Right up there with Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr. and Sr.,Waylon Jennings, and Alan Jackson.

  81. Oscar E

    I tried to give her away...that didn't work ...

  82. jeanelder1226

    love country born and raised on it there is nothing better to help you through tuff times music is the best medicine

  83. jeanelder1226

    love this song

  84. Bryan Burke

    George Strait the King of Country Music.

    Strait has had 60 number 1 hits. To put that into prospective. -Queen has 6.
    -Michael Jackson has 12.
    -Elvis Presley has 18.

    Hugo Stiglitz

    I prefer Hank Jr. Simply because he's got the balls to speak his mind, probably more than anyone else in the industry, but Strait is definitely a legend

    Tracy Pridemore

    Yeah but Jamey Johnson wrote this song gave it George...

  85. Robin Mann

    James. mann

  86. John Downing

    Just give it away Jody Ann no one cares

  87. JCG JCG

    When she left she took everything that was the best deal I have ever made in my life. Hell I got off cheap!

  88. JCG JCG

    Real country music no auto tune or that pop bullsh*" they have in the crap they call country today!

  89. I researched

    Just trying to figure out who the 3k lunatics are that gave this a thumbs down? Obviously they do not know or understand music, lol!

    Ally P

    I researched I know right
    This is what u call real music 💯 🎶

  90. Maria Roybal

    Memories are fore ever. Sometimes you can't give everything away. It's just material things. Love is hard to give away.
    Marie in Greeley, Colorado

  91. Rhonda Boncutter

    I for the life of me can never see why someone would leave this man!

  92. Angela Dyer

    This is real country music george strait number one in my book.

  93. Ronald Watson

    I love this song, it's so meaningful in my book.
