A House of Gold
Written by Hank Wiliams Sr.
As Performed by Mike Ness
Mike ness tunes down to E flat and then plays with a capo on the second fret in almost
song he plays. I do not know why, but to copy him I just play with a capo on the 1st fret.
People steal they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
But don't they know on the judgement day
That Gold and Silver will melt a 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
