Silver and Gold
recorded by Dolly Parton
written by Carl Perkins, Greg Perkins, Stan Perkins

Well I met an old man walking down the street
    G7                                  C
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
                   G7                        C
But things of this world they won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
                  G7                          C
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold
And he said to me let's rest for awhile
    G7                       C
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 #2 And...
His eyes shown like diamonds and his smile was Heaven sent
    G7                                C
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
Repeat #2 He said..
Silver and gold can't buy you a home
                   G7                     C
When this life has ended and your time is gone
But you can live in a world where you'll never grow old
                    G7                           C
And things can't be bought there with silver and gold
                  G7                          C
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold
