Silver,Gold

Song Author Carl Perkins , Greg Perkins og Stan Perkins Performer: Dolly Parton Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Well I met an old man walking down the street
His [G7]clothes were torn and tattered with [C]sandals on his feet

And I stopped to help him and lend him a hand
He said [G7]I love you so much but you must understand

Silver and [C]gold might buy you a home
But things of this [G7]world they won't last you [C]long

And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be [G7]bought back with silver and [C]gold


And he said to me let's rest for awhile
For [G7]I have some good news to [C]share with you child

He said you can't change this old world
The people need to know that a [G7]dear Savior died here

A long long time ago

And silver and [C]gold might buy you a home
But things of this [G7]world they won't last you [C]long

And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be [G7]bought back with silver and [C]gold

[C]His eyes shown like diamonds and his smile was Heaven sent
His [G7]hair was long and flowing and his [C]back was slightly bent

And I knew he knew it for that day I changed
And as [G7]I watched him walk on I forgot to get his name

He said silver and [C]gold might buy you a home
But things of this [G7]world they won't last you [C]long

And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be [G7]bought back with silver and [C]gold

Silver and [C]gold can't buy you a home
When this life has [G7]ended and your time is [C]gone

But you can live in a world where you'll never grow old
And things can't be [G7]bought there with silver and [C]gold
And time can't be [G7]bought back with silver and [C]gold

Well I met an old man walking down the street
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 awhile
For 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
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

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 for that day I changed
And as I watched him walk on I forgot to get his name

He said 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

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
