Linda Ronstadt with Eagles - Silver Threads & Golden Needles




The discography of Linda Ronstadt, an American rock, pop and country artist (who also recorded in other genres, such as light opera and traditional Mexican music), consists of 24 solo studio albums, one live album, numerous compilation albums, and 63 singles.


Developing a country rock sound similar to that of the Eagles, Ronstadt recorded 1974's Grammy-winning Heart Like a Wheel, which sold over two million U. S. copies and spawned the #1 hits "When Will I Be Loved" and "You're No Good".


"Silver Threads and Golden Needles" is a song written by Dick Reynolds and Jack Rhodes. It was first recorded by Wanda Jackson in 1956. The original lyrics, as performed by Jackson, contain a verse not usually included in later versions, which also often differed in other minor details.





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
