Hi Folks-

Anyone know the music to "House of Gold"? Kenny Rankin recorded it in the '70s and Robin and Linda Williams recorded it more recently.

I found it at
This is a great source for country song lyrics.

Hank Williams Sr.

People [D] steal, they [G] cheat and [D] lie
For wealth and what it will buy,
But don't they [G] know on the judgement [D] day
That gold and [A] silver will melt a-[D] way?

I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
And to 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 your knees and pray.
