(Fred Brooks and Marshall Barer)

I ain't gonna marry in the fall
I ain't gonna marry in the spring
For 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
And gold in the morning sun,
And gold in the morning sun.

I'm never gonna kiss the ruby lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
I'm never gonna ask her if she'd marry me
For 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 morning sun,
And gold in the morning sun.

I never could afford a store bought ring
With a sparkling diamond stone
All I could afford was a loving heart
The only one I own.

I'm just a country boy,
Money have I none
But I've got silver in the stars
And gold in the morning sun,
And gold in the morning sun...
