Fourteen Carat Mind

Song Author Nat Stuckey Performer: Gene Watson Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I still recall the [G7]morning that I [C]met you
Standing [F]out in front of Wilson's five and [C]dime
Staring through the [Am]window at the [F]jewelry
[D7]Hungry for the things you couldn't [G7]buy   

Just [C]like a fool I [G7]thought that I could [C]please you
I saw you had an eye for [C7]things that [F]shine
I paid seven saw mill dollars for a [C]bracelet
Just to satisfy your [G7]fourteen carat [C]mind

[Am]Layin' by these railroad tracks in [F]Denver
With a [C]hurtin' head and a half a pint of [G7]wine   
Every[Am]thing except my soul has been su[F]rrendered
Just to [C]satisfy your [G7]fourteen carat [C]mind

The cabin that I [G7]built in West [C]Virginia
Was [F]not enough to keep you sat[C]isfied
'Cause a man that's got [Am]a saw mill occu[F]pation
[D7]Can't afford to feed a rich girls' [G7]appetite

[C]I wonder if you're s[G7]till with Willie [C]Jackson
Sometimes I wonder if [C7]he's still [F]alive
Ol' Willie he gave up his wife and [C]children
Just to satisfy your [G7]fourteen carat [C]mind

[Am]Layin' by these railroad tracks in [F]Denver
With a [C]hurtin' head and a half a pint of [G7]wine   
Every[Am]thing except my soul has been sur[F]rendered
Just to [C]satisfy your [G7]fourteen carat [C]mind


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
