Fourteen Carat Mind
Gene Watson Lyrics


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

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat 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

Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

You got that right! I grew up in the 70s listening to this stuff on the radio.

Paul Young

Sadly. They don't. Is why we gather here.

sgt420sx nope

Shirley Shawhan

@sgt420sx ha, ha. Just saw Gene in concert last night. These jokes can't hold a candle to him. He still puts on at great show.

If I was to compile a list of the top 10 country songs of all time, I think this would be on it.

@Gene Watson Been a fan since the 70s. The country from 60s to early 90s was the best period. Today's music will never compare. No sir, I have never been to a show or received an autograph from you.
