Dolly Parton - Silver & Gold lyrics

Your rating:
Dolly Parton

Well, I met an old man walkin? 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
1st chorus:

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

Repeat 1st chorus

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
As I watched him walk on
I forgot to get his name

2nd chorus:

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
