I’ll Take What You Can Give Me (when You Can) Lyrics – Tammy Wynette

Tonight I’ll wear the gown you bought for me
And fix my hair the way you like it best
I’ll put on the perfume that you gave me and then I’ll wait

Lying here I’d like to make believe
That you’re home and gently kissing me
I’m waiting here alone with the silence as my friend

I could never ask you to leave her
Even though I’m drowning with no place to stand
All I wanna hear is I love you
And I’ll take what you can give me when you can

A little bit of you is better than none of you at all
But all of me is nothing without you
I know I tromped a lot another woman’s man
But it’s alright it’s enough to see me through

But I would never ask you to leave her
Even though I’m drowning with no place to stand
All I wanna hear is I love you
And I’ll take what you can give me when you can
Oh I’ll take what you can give me when you can
