about

A re-write of Hank Williams' "Heaven Holds All My Treasures"

lyrics

Some people don't struggle for riches
And all of the things that they buy
'Say all of your hopes for life's treasures
Can only be found in the sky

They'll say heaven holds all of your riches
More precious than diamonds or gold
There's pie in the sky in that sweet by and by
In the mean time just do as your told

In this world I'm just a drifter
I know nothing but late paying' bills
I did as I's told, and I signed all the loans
and that lesson, I'm paying off still

'Cause now heaven holds all of my treasures
More precious than diamonds or gold
My pie's in the sky in that sweet by and by
In the meantime I do as I'm told

I stand on the banks of the Charles
I stare at that water all brown
I think of the note that my landlady left
And I wonder if I'm better off drowned

Cause if heaven holds all of my riches
And I've no hope for a dollar to hold
I'll smile going down with my heavenly crown
No longer will I do as I'm told
Too late, it's too late to be bold
