“Treasure of Love” is a song by George Jones. It was released as a single on Mercury Records and reached No. 6 on the US country chart in 1958.

Jones composed “Treasure of Love” with J. P. Richardson, better known as the Big Bopper, who also wrote Jones’ first No. 1 country hit “White Lightning.” Jones biographer Bob Allen describes Jones’ “languid, drawling” singing as “more reminiscent of the diphthong-twisting style of Oklahoma honky-tonk king Hank Thompson than anything he’d ever recorded.” The single’s B-side, “If I Don’t Love You (Grits Ain’t Groceries),” became a minor hit, peaking at No. 29 on the charts.

George Jones – Treasure Of Love Lyrics

I’ve got a pocket full of pennies,
The heart full of gold
Though my troubles are many,
I have treasures untold.

And the shack that I live in
Is a palace to me
For the treasure of love
The treasure of love, you gave to me.

In this world there are riches
That money can’t buy
Like the treasure of true love
A love that won’t die.

So why should I worry
What tomorrow will bring
For the treasure of love
The treasure of love, makes me a king.

Though my clothes are all tattered
And I’ve seen better days
Know it really don’t matter
For I’m rich another way.

Yes, my pockets are empty
But still wealthy, I’ll be
With the treasure of love
The treasure of love, you gave to me…
