“All I Have to Offer You (Is Me):” Charley Pride’s 1st No. 1 Song

That’s because giving him fancy gifts would not define my love for him. Anybody can give him one, but only a few can give him time, true love, and faithfulness. Have you heard the song “All I Have to Offer You (Is Me)?” Well, if not, this article will talk about this song as sung by Charlie Pride.

About the Song

Sweetheart, I‘ll give you all my love in every way I can
But make sure that’s what you want while you’re still free
The only gold I have for you is in this wedding band
‘Cause all I have to offer you is me
