​If Teardrops Were Pennies

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Help Stamp Out Loneliness (1967) and on the album I Pawned My Past Today (1969).

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

If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold
I'd have all the treasures my pockets to hold
I'd be oh so wealthy with treasures untold
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold

The tears that you've caused me won't buy you one thing
The heartaches you've brought me won't pay for a ring
The love that I wanted my God have grown cold
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold
