Fourteen Carat Mind

D     A7     D

I still recall the morning that I met you

G     D    

Standing out in front of Wilson’s five and dime

Bm     G

Staring through the window at the jewelry

E     A7

Hungry for the things you couldn’t buy

D     A7     D

Just like a fool I thought that I could please you

D7     G

I saw you had an eye for things that shine

D

I paid seven saw mill dollars for a bracelet

A7     D

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind.

Bm     G

Layin’ by these railroad tracks in Denver

D     A7

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

Bm     G

Every thing except my soul has been surrendered

D     A7

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.


Chorus
