A House Of Gold

Hank Williams

       G          C         G
People steal they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
               C                    G
But don't they know on the judgment day
              D                  G
That Gold and Silver will melt a way.

I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
And to 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
If your heart's not pure and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray.

My Jesus died on Calvary,
he paid the cost that was charged to me
But if silver and gold I never own
Thank God one day I'll have a golden home
