    "Highest Bidder" Lyrics

    Hank Snow

    (Boudleaux Bryant - Hank Snow - Jean Schurtz)

    You put your heart upon an auction block and sold it
    Selfish greed and envy were the auctioneers
    The highest bidder won your heart but he can't hold it
    Love that's bought with gold can only end in tears.

    The price I offered was my true love and devotion
    But you laughed and said that love had had its day
    When at your feet I laid a heart filled with emotion
    You scorned the only price that I could pay.

    --- Instrumental ---

    May the golden price he paid you for your love dear
    Keep you with him may you never drift apart
    Cause at the auction of regret all tears are worthless
    Bids are low for second-handed broken hearts.

    When all your wealth and riches cease to give you pleasure
    When you tire of playing princess you'll recall
    That love alone is life's true everlasting treasure
    And my bid it was the highest after all...
