Album: Ol’ Savannah
(Speedy Johnson)

 

You got the gold, baby, you wear it so all can see
And I got my rags, oh, that’s the way that things must be

 

I’m moving onward to leave the past behind
All your fortune is ruin in disguise

 

You wear that smile, honey, to hide your true grief
All your gold will fade and leave you on your knees

 

That day you’ll cry out, and I can’t help you out
That day you’ll cry out, that day you’ll cry out loud

 

Now there’s no limit to how much you’ll feel the pain
You need a lover, baby, not just material things

 

The end is near dear, you’re down and heartsick
I have no fear, I’m gonna make it

 

Now lose that smile, honey, and show your true grief
‘Cause all your gold will fade, it’ll leave on your knees

 

That day you’ll cry out, and I can’t help you out
That day you’ll cry out, that day you’ll cry out loud
