A House of Gold
Written and recorded by Hank Wiliams 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.
