Gold Watch & Chain

I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love,
I will pawn you my gold diamond ring,
Any thing that is mine I will give,
Only say that you love me again.

Darling, how can I stay here without you,
I have nothing to cheer my poor heart.
All the world would be sad love without you,
Tell me not that we won't have to part.

I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love,
I will pawn you my gold diamond ring,
Any thing that is mine I will give,
Only say that you love me again.

Take back all those gifts you have given,
Oh, the ring and the lock of your hair,
And the card with your picture upon it,
It's a face that is false but is fair.

I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love,
I will pawn you my gold diamond ring,
Any thing that is mine I will give,
Only say that you love me again.

Tell me why that you do not love me,
Tell me why that your smile is not bright,
Tell me why that you've grown so cold hearted,
Is there no kiss for me love tonight.

I will pawn you my gold watch and chain, love,
I will pawn you my gold diamond ring,
Any thing that is mine I will give,
Only say that you love me again.
