1. I still recall the morning that I met you

                    G                                                 D

    standing out in front of Wilson's Five and Dime

       D                           A                   D

    staring through the window at the jewelry

      E                                                   A

    hungry for the things you couldn't buy.

            D                   A                             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

    just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind.

 

 Bm                                                G

Layin' by these railroad tracks in Denver

            D                                                A

with a hurtin' head and a half a pint of wine,

          Bm                                                 G

everything except my soul has been surrendered,

             D                A                     D

just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind.

2. The cabin that I built in West Virginia

             G                                           D

    was not enough to keep you satisfied,

                     D                       A                   D

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

                 E                                          A

    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,

                                                             D

    ol' Willie, he gave up his wife and children,

    just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind.
