If Teardrops Were Silver 
recorded by Connie Smith [3/4 time]
written by
Don Wayne

G D7
If heartache was laughter then I'd be a clown
If loneliness was happiness I could sure spread some round
G7 C
If hurting was like heaven there'd be no wings like mine
G D7 G
If teardrops were silver oh how I'd shine

If loving you was good for me I'd be the picture of health
And if missing you was riches I'd own the world and all its wealth
G7 C
And if wanting you was wisdom I'd be the wisest and then
G D7 G
I'd know why I lost you and could win your love again

D7 C G
But hurting's not heaven it's more like someplace else
A7 D7
But hurting is the one thing that I do so well
G G7 C
Yes if heartaches were funny I could laugh all the time
G D7 G
And if teardrops were silver oh how I'd shine
C G D7 G
If teardrops were silver oh how I'd shine
