Cover LP Dave & Sugar RCA 1979
Dave & Sugar – Golden Tears, is a song written by John Schweers, and recorded by American country music trio Dave & Sugar (Dave Rowland, Etta Britt). It was released in January 1979 as the first single and partial title track from the album Stay with me/Golden Tears. The song was the group’s third and final No. 1 hit on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart. The song was Dave & Sugar’s only multi-week chart-topper, spending three at No. 1 in March. The trio enjoyed several more top 10 singles thereafter before beginning to fade in popularity during the early 1980s.
The song is about a woman who marries a rich man for his money, but quickly realizes that money does not necessarily buy happiness. In one sense, it is also about life in the fast lane and, as Roland put it, «supported the adage, ‘it’s lonely at the top.’

Dave & Sugar – Golden Tears Lyrics

From a Chevy to a Lincoln
From paper shades to curtains
From neon lights to crystal chandeliers
From cut glass to diamonds
Up that ladder she’s climbing crying golden tears
Well, I traded in my Levi’s
For high heels and flowing gowns
And the parties, and the swimming pools
And the scenic view of town
Now, she once told me, she didn’t need love
And that money would see her through the years
That’s the last time, that I saw him
In my eyes full of golden tears
From a Chevy to a Lincoln
From paper shades to curtains
From neon lights to crystal chandeliers
From cut glass to diamonds
Up that ladder she’s climbing crying golden tears
Well, now her picture is in the papers
At country clubs with lots and lots of good times
But my smile is artificial
Because the story is between the line
From a Chevy to a Lincoln
From paper shades to curtains
From neon lights to crystal chandeliers
From cut glass to diamonds
Up that ladder she’s climbing crying golden tears
