Tim O'brien – A House Of Gold lyrics

Some people steal, they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
Don't they know on the judgement day
That their gold and silver will melt away

I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
And 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 (you better get down on)your knees and pray
