Versuri Emmylou Harris - Gold Watch and Chain



Oh, the night is growing colder 
And the stars have lost their shine 
And I have been forsaken 
By everything I thought was mine 
 
For in the darkest hour 
When the final story's told 
No matter how bright I glittered, baby 
I could never be gold 
 
You gave up your finest treasure 
For the one you saw in me 
But how could I know the measure 
Of all you needed me to be 
 
Though I came with sweet intentions 
More my pockets could not hold 
No matter how bright I glittered, baby 
I could never be gold 
 
I finally gave up counting 
The ways you said I let you down 
When I fell into that river of no return 
And you watched me drown 
 
Oh, I could sparkle like a diamond 
Have silver line my soul 
But no matter how I glittered, baby 
I could never be gold 
 
You looked so high and low for heaven 
I tried so hard to show the way 
But though I flew on wings of angels 
My feet were always made of clay 
 
I could come trailing clouds of glory 
But you saw nothing to behold 
No matter how bright I glittered, baby 
I could never be gold 
No matter how bright I glittered, baby 
I could never be gold
