Dolly Parton Silver and Gold Lyrics

His clothes were torn and tattered with sandals on his feet
And I stopped to help him and lend him a hand
He said I love you so much but you must understand

Silver and gold might buy you a home
But things of this world they won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold

And he said to me let's rest for a while
Cause I have some good news to share with you child
He said you can't change this old world the people need to know
That a dear Savior died here a long long time ago

And silver and gold might buy you a home...

His eyes shown like diamonds and his smile was heaven sent
His hair was long and flowing and his back was slightly bent
And I knew he knew it cause that day I changed
As I watched him walk on I forgot to get his name

He said silver and gold can't buy you a home
When this life has ended and your time is gone
But you can live in a world where you'll never grow old
And things can't be bought there with silver and gold
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold
