I Married You for Love
About "I Married You for Love"
Lyrics for Jean Shepard - "I Married You for Love"
I was counting all my riches as I stared along today
Call myself the lucky one though not a penny could I pay
You placed the ring on my hand mother nature's smiled above
You gave me your heart I gave you mine I married you for love
A mansion on a hilltop wouldn't mean a thing to me
I'd never step inside it dear if you're not there with me
I worry so if you're not by my side it's you I'm thinking of
I want you more than life itself I married you for love
[ fiddle - piano - guitar ]
A mansion on a hilltop...
