IF SILENCE IS GOLDEN
(Dulcie Younger)
DULCIE YOUNGER & THE SILENCERS (GOLLY GEE 1033)

If silence is golden, I must be richer than Midas
For I have been counting the hours
Since I last felt your touch
You wanted to love her,
So I let you go
But over my shoulder
I wait for you to come home.

I followed your footsteps
Down to the bar
Where Johnny said, "Traveler,
You must have come far."
And far from my heart's
I'm sure what you thought
When you looked in his eyes,
Did nothin' but nod

My heart feels so lonely
I've been nothin' but blue
Since you up and left me
For some Mary Lou
This house feels so empty
You're seat's growing cold
And I've never known pain
Like this pain in my soul.

If silence is golden, I must be richer than Midas
For I have been counting the hours
Since I last felt your touch
You wanted to love her,
So I let you go
But over my shoulder
I wait for you to come home
