Wilburn Brothers — All We Had Going Is Gone lyrics

Why wear a ring that's turned to rust our fools gold has turned to rust
There's no reason our love should go on
We're drinking from a cup of tears our love's had it's day for cheers
All we had going is gone

We crushed the rose and kept the thorns it hurts us every way we turn
I want you to stop this holding on
The time has come to drop the act you love me when it's a fact
All we had going is gone

Let it go if something keeps on hurting you
Or it will keep on hurting till you do
Lately I don't have the heart to try to hold what fell apart
All we had going is gone
[ guitar ]
All we had going is gone
