(Gillian Welch)
Well nothing new has passed this way in a long time
Maybe nothing's ever gonna come
And nothing seems to grow outside my window
I think I'd better go and get me some
Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills
That's making people nervous
You know they get scared of the cold and the chill
Start praying God preserve us
I can't believe how long I've stayed
2 more days till I get paid
And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating
Tell him I'm done patiently waiting
Patiently waiting
I've had fun just holding hands at the movie show
And I've had good times tearing up the town
But I've spent cold nights waiting
Out front of the movie show
Thinking that half the hands that held me, held me down
Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills
That's making people nervous
You know they get scared of the cold and the chill
Start praying God preserve us
I can't believe how long I've stayed
2 more days till I get paid
And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating
Tell him I'm done patiently waiting
Some folks never get their share of the sweet life
Some just come around a little late
I got this feeling sitting at a stop light
Seems like good things only come to those who
Hit the road when they know what they want
Well, I want to get some of the gold in the hills
That's making people nervous
You know they get scared of the cold and the chill
Start praying God preserve us
I can't believe how long I've stayed
2 more days till I get paid
And I'll find that small town boy I'm dating
Tell him I'm done patiently waiting
I'm done patiently waiting
