Words to a song

Is anyone out there old enough to remember a song called "Give Me Something to Remember You By". If so, please give me the words to this song. Thanks.

This one?

Brooker / Renwick / Sinfield)

So many ships have slipped on by in the night
I couldn't keep the score
Until you tied up in the harbour with me
And I prayed we'd share something more
Maybe we both tried just a bit too hard
New loves so close and true
For ten wild days we held a straight flush in hearts
And then I froze on you

Give me something to remember you by
Like a kiss on a cold cold night
Give me something to remember you by
As your ship sinks out of sight

The queen of rubies took the sweet jack of moon
So high above the flood
Though they survived the fall with ice on their wings
The stables ran with blood
Maybe we had too much to win or loose
We'd both been lost before
But that ain't your hear that's an anchor and chain
All those are claw marks across my floor

Give me something to remember you by
Like a knife or a blue steel key
Give me something to remember you by
Like a rose like a storm at sea

Give me something to remember you by
We weren't wrong but we weren't right
Give me something to remember you by
Bye-bye baby, bye-bye

It's an old, old song beginning...

Oh, give me something to remember you by
When you are far away from me.
Some little something meaning love cannot die....

can't think of the rest of it......
