If Teardrops Were Diamonds
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used
They could pave every highway
Coast to coast and not be close to through
If teardrops were diamonds, cold blue

If heartaches were rubies
Stacked up just like stones
There would be a mountain
Ten miles high, built by mine alone

If heartaches were rubies, mine alone
You might begin to understand
The price love has to pay, for being wrong

If sad thoughts were emeralds
And with not countin', in between
Just half the ones I've had today
Could turn the whole world green

If sad thoughts were emeralds
And the world turned green
You might just, get the message that
There's more to loneliness, than can be seen

If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used

Dwight Yoakam could sing the wheels on the bus go round and round and make it sound good
