      SILVER THREADS AND GOLDEN NEEDLES   Linda Ronstradt

         G                                C 
I don't want your lonely mansion  with a tear in every room
       G                                                A   D
All I want's the love you promised beneath the silvery moon-oon.
        G                                 C 
Do you think I could be happy with your money and your name
      G                               D                   G
And drown myself in sorrow while you play your cheating game

CHORUS:
          C                                G
Silver threads and golden needles can not mend this heart of mine
                                                           A   D
And I dare not drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine-ine
            G                               C
Your can't buy my love with money cause I never was that kind
        G                                  D                  G
Silver threads and golden needles can not mend this heart of mine.

lead   go to chorus


ENDING:
          C                  G             F          
Silver threads and golden needles can not mend this heart
     G   F  G  F  G  
of mine-ine-ine-ine.
