YOU TAKE THE TABLE

(And I'll Take The Chairs)

w & m by John D Loudermilk
1958 Cedarwood

So here we are breakin' up our home
To go our sep'rate ways all alone
Go take your love you just wouldn't share
You take the table and I'll take the chairs

Breaking up a home that was so sweet
Sorting out the things we want to keep
A perfect way to start a life of care
You take the table and I'll take the chairs

What a shame to see such pretty things
Seperated like our wedding rings
From the basement to the attic stair
You take the table and I'll take the chairs

Life is oh so useless since you're gone
All I do is sit and weep alone
With a heart that's too blue to bear
Since you took the table and I took the chairs
