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.
D G DPeople steal they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
G DBut don't they know on the judgement day
A DThat 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
