SILVER THREADS/GOLDEN NEEDLES


I don't want your lonely mansion with
The chill in every room
I just want the love you promised
Beneath the pale moon
But you think I should be happy withYour money and your name
And Pretend that I don't notice while
You play your cheatin' game

    * Refrain:
    Silver threads and golden needles can't
    Put 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


I grew up in faded gingham where love
Is a sacred thing
You grew up in silk and satin
Where love's a passin game
I know now you never loved me
And I know now I was a fool to think your
Pride would let you
Live by the golden rule
    * Refrain
