Lyrics

Silver & Gold

Tempted Sur with silver, tempted Sur with gold
And all the earthly pleasures, man could ever hold
He came up from Virginia, with his walking cane
Stayed out on the sideroads, so know one’d know his name

Some people said he was skinny, he’d just say he was lean
When them whiskey drinking mommas catch sight
He’s the best they’ve ever seen

Yeah we’re talking midnight, Daddy’s not around
Church bells are ringing, without a sound
So get on back to Virginia, leave them girls alone
Stay out on the side roads, Delta coming home
