"I Gave My Love a Candle" as written by and Joel Zoss....
Bonnie Raitt

I gave my love a candle
A promise at life
And I told æ?½m when my number comes up
Winds would fill the sky
Me Iæ?¦ fixinto die
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didnæ?° have to fool me
You didnæ?° have to lie
My love comes æ??ound like a thief in the night
But only love can make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Your love was like a diamond ride a wave
On a sea that calms my mind
Moving onward to a distant shore
Where the boats sail in a line
We have danced to a fateful rhyme
Moving down the same lonesome road
No I donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didnæ?° have to fool me, no
You didnæ?° have to lie
If it all came out so ugly
Itæ?¯ only my love that could make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
And I still donæ?° know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Ooh ooh ooh
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
