George Jones performs "Treasure Of Love"Live Video

"Treasure of Love" is a song by George Jones. It was released as a single on Mercury Records and reached No. 6 on the US country chart in 1958.

Jones composed "Treasure of Love" with J. P. Richardson, better known as the Big Bopper, who also wrote Jones' first No. 1 country hit "White Lightning." Jones biographer Bob Allen describes Jones' "languid, drawling" singing as "more reminiscent of the diphthong-twisting style of Oklahoma honky-tonk king Hank Thompson than anything he'd ever recorded.The single's B-side, "If I Don't Love You (Grits Ain't Groceries)," became a minor hit, peaking at No. 29 on the charts

George Jones - Treasure Of Love Lyrics

 

I've got a pocket full of pennies the heart full of gold

Though my troubles are many I have treasures untold

And the shack that I live in is a palace to me

For the treasure of love the treasure of love you gave to me

In this world there are riches that money can't buy

Like the treasure of true love a love that won't die

So why should I worry what tomorrow will bring

For the treasure of love the treasure of love makes me a king

Though my clothes are all tattered and I've seen better days

Know it really don't matter for I'm rich another way

Yes my pockets are empty but still wealthy I'll be

With the treasure of love the treasure of love you gave to me
