John Denver – And So It Goes lyrics

A mansion on a hill is a lovely sight to see
But like any other house it's only temporary
Home is anywhere you choose to put your heart
If there's no love inside, it will soon fall apart

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust
Buildings will crumble, bridges will rust
Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up
And so it goes with everything but love

You can drive around in a long limousine
If you don't know where you're going, it don't mean a thing
He who'd walk a mile just to hold an empty hand
Knows what it means to be a wealthy man

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust
Palaces will crumble, bridges will rust
Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up
And so it goes with everything but love

Worldly treasures will all pass away
There's just one thing that was put here to stay

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust
Kingdoms will crumble, bridges will rust
Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up
And so it goes with everything but love
