Wealth Never Won a Woman's Heart.
Copyright, 1893, by Spaulding, Kornder & Co.
Words and Music by Chas. Graham.

"Why do you chide me?" a young wife said
To her husband old and gray;
"You know 'twas a folly for us to wed,
But with mother you had your way.
We were poor, and she was so sorely tried,
And then you asked me to be your bride;
You know I was only an old man's pride,
When I became your wife.

Wealth never won a woman's heart, wealth only reigns In slav'ry's mart;
Love, only love can e'er impart joy to a woman's life.
Faith that was mine thro' doubts and fears, passes as pass away the years;
I've known but bitterness, grief and tears since I became your wife.

"If I had known in my early days
What the future meant for me,
I'd gladly have toiled for myself," she said,
"If my life could be only free.
You can give me freedom again, I know,
For I've been faithful, as time will show;
My heart may be won, tho' it was not so
When I became your wife.'" -Refrain.
