I Love You Truly I Can't Give You Anything But Love (Baby)
The Ink Spots
Words by Dorothy Fields and Music by Jimmy McHugh

- This version did not chart, but no great loss because everybody and their brother
did it, following its introduction in the revue "Lew Leslie's Blackbirds of 1928".
- In 1928: Cliff Edwards (# 1); Ben Selvin (# 2); Johnny Hamp (# 4); and Seger Ellis (# 19)
- Then, in 1929, it was charted by Gene Austin and Nat Shilkret (both hit # 12)
- In 1936 Teddy Wilson featuring Billie Holiday took it to #5.
- In 1943 it was sung in the film "Stormy Weather" by Lena Horne and Bill
"Bojangles" Robinson.
- In 1948 Rose Murphy brought it back again, at # 13.
- It finally wore out with the 1966 instrumental version by Bert Kaempfert at # 100.

I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby
Dream a while, scheme a while
You're sure to find
Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for

Now, gee I love to see you lookin' swell, baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby
Till that lucky day, you know darn well, baby
I can't give you anything but love
--
