David Luning – Be Like Gold lyrics

I woke up to the setting sun
Nothin to show for what I had done
I became, so adrift and estranged
From what I once was 'fore I lost my way

I ached for the place where my love resides
Across the mountains across the river wide
As I gazed at that jagged line
A heavy burden, weighin on my mind
And I remember my father sayin

He said son, be a working man
Do the best you can
And you'll be like gold
And love with an honest heart
Always do your part, and you'll be like gold
Live with pride cause you tried

So I rode through those forlorn fields
And made my way back on some rusted wheels
Back to where my true love resides
Across the mountains, across the river wide

There stood the house alone on the hill
The paint was weathered now, it was dark and still
A fool I was, to be gone so long
For I knew now, my love was gone

He said son, be a working man
Do the best you can
And you'll be like gold
And love with an honest heart
Always do your part, and you'll be like gold
Live with pride cause you tried
