Wanda Jackson — Silver Threads And Golden Needles lyrics

I don't want your lonely mansion with a chill in every room
I just want the love you promised beneath the halo'd moon
But you think I should be happy with your money and your name
And pretend that I don't notice while you play your cheatin' game

Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
And I'll never drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine
You can't buy my love with money for I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
[ guitar ]
I grew up in in faded gingham where love is a sacred thing
You grew up in silk and satin where love is the passin' game
I know now you never loved me and I know I was the fool
To think your pride would let you live by the golden rule

Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
And I'll never drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine
You can't buy my love with money for I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
