Patty Griffin House Of Gold Lyrics

Last updated: 02/23/2010 10:00:00 AM

(originally by Hank Williams)
People steal, they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
Don't they know on judgement day
Gold and silver will melt away

I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul

What good is gold and silver too
When your heart's not good and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul
