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

Laying by these railroad tracks in Denver
With a hurting head and a half a pint of wine
Everything except my soul has been surrendered
Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

Sometimes I wonder if he's still alive
Old Willie he gave up his wife and children
Just to satisfy your fourteen carat mind

With a hurting head and a half a pint of wine
Everything except my soul has been surrendered
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

I loved this music as a a troubled teen in the eighties and in a way gene,merle,Waylon,and many others were the friends that made some of the hardship livable.

Stonewall Jackson

They don't make music like this anymore!
Awesome song !

J Maxwell Bash

Maybe not, but sometimes they cover it and make it even better! Check out Daniel Donato's cover from last year. It's an epic.

Brad Gray

No they don't, and the man who wrote that great tune just passed away yesterday..... RIP Dallas Frazier!

Brings back so many good memories of my childhood! I've been a "classic" country junkie all my life. It never gets old! Wish we had real country singers like this on the radio today!

Gary Kerns

I had my own little precept, principle, whatever one wishes to call it. Give me a good AM country station and I was about as happy as one could be. NYC's 1050 WHN is my favorite of all time, though it's been gone almost 35 years. posting 1-25-22.

@Chris Wooley Why would you say sorry, George? The Possum is right-NO ONE'S gonna fill their shoes. Anyway, I have Willie's Roadhouse on Sirius XM ch. 59 in my car that plays nothing but traditional country music, and that's where it's staying

Chris Wooley

It's sad that today's radio is filled with jingle singers.
Sorry George, no one's gonna fill their shoes.
