If Teardrops Were Pennies
(Carl Smith)
Peak Position: #24 Year: 51

If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold
Id have all the riches my pockets would hold
Id be oh so wealthy with treasures untold
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold.

An acre of diamonds Id offer to you
A solid gold mansion, an airplane or two
This world would be yours to have and to hold
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold

The tears that have fallen wont buy you a thing
The heartaches you caused me wont pay for a ring
The love that I wanted would not have grown cold
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold.
