Myrtle's cook Lyr Req: Gold in the Morning Sun (10) ADD: I'm Just a Country Boy 13 Feb 09


The refrain and strands of these versions appear in Don William's 'I'm Just a Country Boy':

I'M JUST A COUNTRY BOY
(as recorded by Don Williams)

I ain't gonna marry in the fall
I ain't gonna marry in the spring
Cause I'm in love with a pretty little girl
Who wears a diamond ring

CHORUS:
Cause I'm just a country boy
Money have I none
But I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun
And gold in the morning sun

Never gonna kiss the ruby red lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
Never gonna ask her if she'd marry me
I know she'd turn me down

Never could afford a store bought ring
With a sparkling diamond stone
All I could afford is a lovin' heart
The only one I own
