Gene watson Fourteen Carat Mind Lyrics

 

I still recall the morning that I met you

Standing out in front of Wilson's five and dime

Staring through the window at the jewelry

Hungry for the things you couldn't buy

Just like a fool I thought that I could please you

I saw you had an eye for things that shine

I paid seven saw mill dollars for a bracelet

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

Layin' by these railroad tracks in Denver

With a hurtin' head and a half a pint of wine

Everything except my soul has been surrendered

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

The cabin that I built in West Virginia

Was not enough to keep you satisfied

'Cause a man that's got a saw mill occupation

Can't afford to feed a rich girls' appetite

I wonder if you're still with Willie Jackson

Sometimes I wonder if he's still alive

Ol' Willie he gave up his wife and children

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

Layin' by these railroad tracks in Denver

With a hurtin' head and a half a pint of wine

Everything except my soul has been surrendered

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind
