Alison Krauss - You're Just A Country Boy Lyrics




Ain't gonna marry in the fall
Ain't gonna marry in the spring
For you're in love
With a pretty little girl
Who wears a diamond ring

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

Never gonna kiss the ruby red lips
Of the prettiest girl in town
Never gonna ask her if she'll marry you
She'd only turn you down

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

Never could afford a store bought ring
With a sparklin' diamond stone
All you could afford is a loving heart
The only one you own

You're just a country boy
Money have you none
But you've got silver
In the stars
Gold in the morning sun
Gold in the morning sun

    Wonderful song, you make me cry 😔😔😥😥👍👍👍

    This woman really knows how to touch men's hearts. This song was written by Don Williams and his version is also as beautiful as this if not better since he wrote and sang it first. They called him the gentle giant. The words he wrote in this song and how Alison delivers it it nothing short of amazing. You feel those words as a man. I know a man isn't supposed to cry but I do because I'm there. This song hits me like no other as if it knows me. The brilliance of Don Williams with Alison Krauss singing his songs. Don Williams is no longer with us, but his spirit will always be here. It's the song that touches me the most. Lucky alison actually had a chance to sing with Don before he passed. His music will live on.

  7. Stephen Austin

    where was this done?

  8. Stephen Austin

    absolutely wonderful...tender and profound delivery of a true classic

  9. 五十嵐隆弘

    佐渡裕さんがゲストの時の「サワコの朝」で初めて聴いた曲です。印象に残った曲なので、新しい職場に異動したばかりの時、「こんな曲知ってる?」という感じで事務所で同僚に聴かせました。その事務所に勤務する前に、今は亡き父と事務所を下見したこと覚えています。だから、この曲を聴くと父を思い出します。

  10. Stephen Austin

    Thank you God for this song. Sad, beautiful, and spiritual....

  11. Ron Wagner

    I'd rather be a country boy. anyday.anytime.anywhere.and she sings like a country girl. God Bless her singing

  12. Jamey Smith

  21. Lisa Novick

    What a beautiful voice magical like an angel. The only other voice That I still love is Karen Carpenter

  22. muggaful

    This would have been great as a duet with Don. Their voices would have been a stunning contrast.

  23. Edward

    most stunning song

  24. horacio ngovene

    just remaindered me of The Gentle Giant Don Williams

  25. dan casey

    Although I love Alison Krauss, I think this song belongs to Don Williams alone.

    J Anderson

    dan casey exactly right

  26. Onewxrld Music

    Kudos to the musicians for their charming yet effective musical accompaniment. Enchanting but just enough so that they don't overwhelm the beautiful vocals.

  27. Tim Brown

    Only an angel could sing more beautifully

    Mike

    Nah, she give's them lessons!

  35. Random

    AC/DC is better

  36. James Burstedt

    Очень хорошо!

  44. Abdelkader Bendouma

    You are magnifique Alison

  45. Aaron Long

    Actually this is a Don Williams song.
    but her version is just as good.

    E. K. Salls III

    Harry Belafonte, Sam Cooke, and John Holt all sang it before Don Williams. I do like Don Williams’ version best.

    mickey7411

    @E. K. Salls III idiot STFU>>>If it wasn't for Whites there wouldn't be any country asshole.

    dan page

    @E. K. Salls III Don't worry about that comment but John Holt the reggae singer did a reggae version of this song? He's Jamaican.

    E. K. Salls III

    mickey7411 don’t think you read what I wrote.

    E. K. Salls III

    dan page yes. Cornell Campbell did a reggae version too in 1975. All the versions I mentioned are on YouTube.

  46. ROMULO TRISTAO

    Sempre apreciei sua voz.

  47. Gent30 X

    Stunning. Just stunning. Song. Voice. Woman.

  59. Ortelius Abraham

    資本主義カースト制度の哀しい現実をしっとりと歌い上げた名曲。

  60. David Marsden

    Country Boys are always positive, but they have no money, so not popular.

  61. Laksh Rampal

    It is a beautiful voice.. i have always liked her songs... but i dont understand if this is a positive one or a negative one...

    Laksh Rampal

    Oh! Really?

    Roland Laufer

    Definitely a beautiful touching song. Positive and negative, sad and happy. Gold in the morning sun...

    22metzfan

    Music is always up to your own interpretation. It means whatever it means to you. 

  62. yetidahu38

    simply beautiful

  63. hengki firman syah

    beautiful song by @***** , so meaningful for me

  64. rbcastillo

    That mic is a Sony c800.

  65. Tug Yourgrau

    What's the make and model of the mic she's using? Anyone know?  Looks like an Audix.

  66. Raylan Givens

    ...I don't get this place.
    They make me buy an outfit but they let you wear a house dress.
    I don't get it.

    ---MELVIN UDALL (As Good As It Gets)

  67. Horace Lynch

    Some folks seem to just have more than others. She has it all.

  68. Judy Lewis

    Alison, you are so pretty. When you sing you look and sound like I imagine an angel would. I have loved you're music for years your are the best

  69. John The Smasher

    Sarah Brightman blows now...

  70. Valentino Miller

    A duet with Alison and Sarah Brightman would be Heaven on Earth.

  71. trev747

    Beautiful song, beautiful voice, beautiful woman ...

  72. bear Smoker

    What a duet Alison Krauss and Don Williams would be,

  73. Music is my life.

    Beautiful Song~;)

  74. StereoSpace

    I think I'm in love with this woman. :)

  75. long nguyen

    thanks you so much.cry~~~~~

  76. Clayton Delaney

    Why does she call herself 'Country & Blugrass Musician'?
    I just can hear Gospel ...

  77. Francis Halls

    Heard this waiting for a ferry two weeks ago. Can now hum nothing else. Agh! But it is beautifully done

  78. MickyDee67

    There are musicians, songwriters, singers and artists but this lady is right at the top and should take the grand title of entertainer. Such a joy to watch and listen to perfection.

  79. Ande Truman

    Flawless!

  80. jimirsaysbuddy

    She'll never be a "Taylor Swift" ..........THANK GOD ALMIGHTY!!!!

    Frank Seabolt

    jimirsaysbuddy Much better!

    Mary Smith

    You're much more prescient than I. Six years ago, I still thought she was okay. She's really gone off the leftist, anti-American deep end, sadly.

  81. farmmur

    She's talented, she's beautiful, she's nice, she's the girl next door, She's Alison Krauss.

  82. dennis Tarpein

    I'd marry her if she would just sing

  83. pandagirl1983

    I feel I could use every accolade in the English language to describe Alison & it still wouldn't sufficiently sum up her talent & beauty. She is, quite simply put, indescribable.

  84. jetclntn

    breaks my heart , my eyes just well up every time I hear her sing. Her face her voice are just breath taking

  85. Michael Stal

    Wow , stunning vocal - TOP!

  86. Teachering

    I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that it was Jim Croce who was one of the first to ever record this song, though it was not written by him. On Ms. Krauss' album credit goes to Fred Hellerman and Marshall Barer.

  87. Bigwill6363

    taylor swift, carrie underwood, you could add their beauty together and wouldnt come up half as beautiful as her. Her voice is 100 times better than any other female singer too

  88. LeRoy Dicks

    I always like Alison, but I just fell in love with her what a Beautiful voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've heard this songs many times from the Gentle Giant, but I believe I like this version better! Thank You for the post.

  89. dakotaschoolmaster

    She could sing the phonebook and I would have tears in my eyes.

  90. Kuan Yeah

    it's so beautiful

  91. FeministYeti

    Also, I think it's adorable how lost she is without her fiddle. She never knows what to do with her hands when she's not holding it.

  92. FeministYeti

    Her voice literally brings tears to my eyes.

  93. Gentlegianttoo

    Don could only have allowed Alison cover this and now they've gone and done a duet on a song.

  94. A S

    Yes, that's Gordon Mote on piano.

  95. steinsteel

    Dolly Parton was my number 1 female singer until i Discovered Alison Krauss

  96. frankdrac

    @senilitysux66 A very under the radar version is Richard Manuel's (on the band's 1993 Jericho, he died in 1986)

  97. rbryant100

    "All You Can Afford Is a Loving Heart." Love this line, and love the song. Just another sublime performance by Alison.

  98. TERRI VIAN

    MOST BEAUTIFUL VOICE I HAVE EVER HEARD....
