IF TEARDROPS WERE PENNIES by Carl Butler & Pearl

If [I] teardrops were pennies and [IV] heartaches were [I] gold

I'd have all the treasures my pockets would [V] hold.

I'd [I] be, oh, so wealthy with [IV] treasures un-[I] told.

If teardrops were pennies and [V] heartaches were [V] gold.


An acre of diamonds I'd [IV] offer to [I] you.

A solid gold mansion, an airplane or [V] two.

This [I] world would be yours to [IV] have and to [I] hold

If teardrops were pennies and [V] heartaches were [I] gold.

Instrumental


The tears that have fallen won't [IV] buy you a [I] thing.

the heartache you caused me won't pay for a [V] ring.

The [I] love that I wanted would [IV] not have grown [I] cold.

If teardrops were pennies and [V] heartaches were [I] gold.

Thanks, Tom.  My deepest roots are Gospel, blues and old timey.  Now I am trying to get a 15 song country set worked up and it is the OLD timey stuff again.

JAMES!   Whah-some to hear from you.  I hope all is well.  I have missed you.

Kid away, buddy (Vinnie).  Harp just takes a few minutes practice done on most days for about a year.  Jack' s harp page for melody harp like done on this song.  Tip for melody (straight) harp.  Most or at least many songs start on 4 blow

Most basic tips for cross harp key of G - use a C harp - Draw (suck) the 3 low holes for the G chord.

Blow 4 hole or blow 34 for the C chord and draw the 5 hole for the D chord.

No Janet, we're open and either she or me needs to put taters in at 3:00. If I'm not the keeper of the spud on Thursday I may venture up. Thanks for the invite and I will try to avoid spud duties :-)

Patrick, 1:30 pm at my house.  Come earlier and will feed you lunch.  Janet more than welcome too.

Nancy, that really did give me a LOL.

Comment by Maddog on Monday

Thursday at 1330? Military time? I was never good at military time, you'd think I'd be better with  as many episodes of MASH that I've watched :-)

Where at?
