The Highest Bidder Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Mary Jean Shurtz, Boudleaux Bryant, Hank Snow
C F You put your heart upon an auction block and sold it G7 C Selfish greed and envy were the auctioneers G7 C F The highest bidder won your heart but he can't hold it G7 C Love that's bought with gold can only end in tears
G7 C The price I offered was my true love and devotion D7 G7 But you laughed and said that love had had its day C F When at your feet I laid a heart filled with emotion G7 C You scorned the only price that I could pay
F May the golden price he paid you for your love dear G7 C Keep you with him may you never drift apart G7 C F Cause at the auction of regret all tears are worthless G7 C Bids are low for second-handed broken hearts
G7 C When all your wealth and riches cease to give you pleasure D7 G7 When you tire of playing princess you'll recall C F That love alone is life's true everlasting treasure G7 C And my bid it was the highest after all
