For The Love Of Music: 7 July 2021

Good day friends,

Here is my song for today. Hope you enjoy it.

Silver and Gold – Dolly Parton

Well, I met an old man walkin’ down the street
His clothes were torn and tattered
With sandals on his feet
And I stopped to help him
And lend him a hand
He said, I love you so much
But you must understand

Silver and gold might buy you a home
But things of this world
They won’t last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can’t be bought back with silver and gold

And he said to me, let’s rest for awhile
For I have some good news to share with you, child
He said, you can’t change this old world
The people need to know
That a dear savior died here
A long, long time ago

Silver and gold might buy you a home
But things of this world
They won’t last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can’t be bought back with silver and gold

His eyes shown like diamonds
And his smile was heaven sent
His hair was long and flowing
And his back was slightly bent
And I knew he knew it
For that day I changed
As I watched him walk on
I forgot to get his name

He said, silver and gold can’t buy you a home
When this life has ended
And your time is gone
But you can live in a world where
You’ll never grow old
And things can’t be bought there with silver and gold

And time can’t be bought back with silver and gold

Thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to have a look at my post and listen to the my song for the day.

Music is the universal language of mankind.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Keep Singing the day away…
