Wanda Jackson — Silver Threads And Golden Needles lyrics

I don't want your lonely mansion with a tear 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' games
Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
And I never drown my sorrow 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 a passin' game
I know now you never loved me and I know I was the fool
To think your cry would let you live by the golden rule
Silver threads and golden needles can't patch up this heart of mine
And I never drown my sorrow 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
