    Lyrics

    (Hank Williams)
    George Jones & Melba Montgomery

    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 away.

    I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
    And 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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.

    I'd rather be in a deep dark grave
    And 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...
