Don Williams – I’m Just a Country Boy Lyrics

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
And I’m just a country boy
Money have I none
But I’ve got silver in the stars
Gold in the mornin’ sun
Gold in the mornin’ 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
‘Cause I’m just a country boy
Money have I none
But I’ve got silver in the stars
And gold in the mornin’ sun
Gold in the mornin’ sun
I never could afford
A store bought ring
With a sparkling diamond stone
All I could afford
Is a loving heart
The only one I own
‘Cause I’m just a country boy
Money have I none
But I’ve got silver in the stars
And gold in the mornin’ sun
Gold in the mornin’ sun…
