I'M ALL ALONE IN A PALACE OF STONE (Lon Mooney) Annette Hanshaw - 1926 Henry Burr - 1926 The Toppers - 1947 As recorded by ANNETTE HANSHAW: Somewhere, someone is sorry today One of the many fools who sold her love for jewels Somewhere, someone is pining away And if you were there tonight, you'd hear her say I'm all alone in a palace of stone Down in the city of tears Trying to care for an old millionaire Wasting the best of my years I'm just a poor little girl holding gold moneybags Silks on my back, while my heart is in rags I'm all alone in a palace of stone Down in the city of tears Honour they Father and Mother I learned that when I was a kid I've always obeyed But I'm not afraid to tell you I'm sorry I did I'm not throwing stones at my Daddy I'm not finding fault with my Mum But when they went and picked me a husband They went a little too far I was sold to the highest bidder A millionaire, grizzled and grey But May was to old for December And December was too cold for May Honour they Father and Mother Is a commandment that comes from above But even if you have to break it Marry the man that you love For I'm all alone in a palace of stone Down in the city of tears Trying to care for an old millionaire Wasting the best of my years I'm just a poor little girl holding gold moneybags Silks on my back, while my heart is in rags I'm all alone in a palace of stone Down in the city of tears (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2018)
