|Silver theads and golden needles|
|Grateful Dead and many others|
I don't want your lenly 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 with your money and your name
And pretend that I don't notice while you play your cheatin' game.
Silver threads and golden needles can't patch 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 I was a fool
To think your pride would let you live by the golden rule.
Silver threads ...
