​I'm Doing This For Your Sake

This song is by Dolly Parton and appears on the album The Fairest of Them All (1969).

Somone else's arms will hold you
My darling baby girl
I'll never get to see the child
I brought into this world
Because I made one mistake
Folks say that I'm bad
But they just don't understand
The way I loved your Dad
Now I thought your Daddy loved me
I was so sure he did
And so I gave him all my love
And he said, we would wed
But I guess he must have changed his mind
'Cause he left town one day
When he found out about you
He just up and ran away

In this home so far away from home
I leave my heart today
'Cause home is where the heart is
And with you, my heart will stay
Because I love you so much
Why, I can't make you pay
So I'm doing this for your sake
I'm giving you away
