Patty Loveless The Richest Fool Alive Lyrics

Last updated:

The Richest Fool Alive (Recorded by Patty Loveless)

Verse 1
There's just no way of going back, to change what's come and gone
But if I could go back in time, I’d undo what you've done
I wouldn't look into your eyes, and go completely blind
Or listen to your pretty words, and leave my heart behind

*Chorus
If heartache were treasure, and pain could be sold
If dreams were made of silver, and promises of gold
If tear drops were diamonds, measured in lies
I’d have a broken heart worth millions, and be the richest fool alive.
(Repeat last line in instrumental)

Verse 2
Next time I listen to my friends, take their advice to heart
And avoid all of this misery, I could of ended from the start
But fools in love don't listen, they don't know right from wrong
They see just what they wanna see, and miss it when it’s gone

*Chorus
If heartaches were treasure, and pain could be sold,
If dreams were made of silver, and promises of gold
Tear drops were diamonds, measured in lies
I’d have a broken heart worth millions, and be the richest fool alive
(Repeat last line and repeat again in instrumental).
