Demo Lyrics & Pdf

In this song the chords I'm using are a G chord, an A chord, a D chord and a quick C chord is in there also. You can also add in an A7 or D7 if you wish but not required. 7th chords are transition chords normally so they work well in this song. 

Ronstadt used a bit of a rock n roll vibe in her version here, which adds a bit of spice to the song which is traditionally played in a more standard country format.

The right hand rhythm is pretty much up and down except where there is a quick bass run and you'll spot those in the demo video.

Chord Sheet //Buy

The lead break here i show I prefer to play lead where possible and that is to blend the melody of the song with the rhythm of the song. It works well here because if a fiddle or a steel was to take a break here, they'd likely play the melody of the tune. It doesn't always follow that pattern, but in this case it works ok.


Silver Threads And Golden Needles Lyrics


I don't want your lonely mansion with a tear in every room
All I want's the love you promised beneath the haloed moon
But you think I should be happy with your money and your name
And hide myself in sorrow while you play your cheating game

Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
And I dare not drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine
You can't buy my love with money cause I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine

Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
And I dare not drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine
You can't buy my love with money cause I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
