Money Tree Lyrics

MONEY TREE
(Wayne P. Walker)
'67 Cedarwood Publishing, BMI

Silver and gold made you say goodbye
One day it may make you wanna cry
When you're alone with a heart that's blue
Who will you take your heartaches too
Love can't grow on a money tree not the kind you had with me
Some day when you're older a wiser girl you'll be
Then you'll know that love can't grow on a money tree
I don't blame you for all my pain
A young girl like you needs time to dream
You're happy now but how long will it last
One day you'll be just a girl with the past
Love can't grow on a money tree...
