Love Alone cho: It's love and love alone That caused King Edward to leave his throne It's love, it's love, it's love alone That caused King Edward to leave his throne. I know King Edward was noble and great But It's love what caused him to abdicate. I know my mama she gonna grieve He said "I cannot help it but I'm bound to leave." And he got the money and he got the talk And the fancy walk just to suit New York. You can take me throne, you can take me crown, But leave me Miss SDimpson to renown. Come a reel come a roll upon my mind I cannot leave Mrs. Simpson behind If a plane and a ship don't carry me free I'll walk with Miss Simpson across the sea. On the tenth of December you heard the talk When he gave the throne to the Duke of York. Then Baldwin want to break down his stand He said,"I'm giving up with my government!" Now he's the victim of circumstance Now they live in the south of France. If you see Mrs. Simpson across the street You can guarantee she is a busy bee. Let the organ roll, let the church bell ring He said, "Good luck" to our second bachelor King. Recorded by Blind Blake, Lord Invader RG
