FOURTEEN CARAT MIND
Recorded by Gene Watson
Written by Dallas Frazier and Larry Lee
[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
[D] 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 sur-[F] rendered
Just to [C] satisfy your [G7] fourteen carat [C] 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.
