Gold All Over the Ground

Album: Love and War (2017)
  • If I had you at my mercy
    There's no telling what I'd do
    But I'd sit and make you listen
    For an hour, maybe two
    And then you'd know I need you
    Every day that rolls around
    And your feet would walk on velvet
    With gold all over the ground

    You're trails would be downhill
    A soft breeze at your back
    A sky full of diamonds
    And your nights would not be black
    Yes, you would really love it
    And if you're ever down
    I'd give you rows of roses
    And gold all over the ground

    I'd pick you up and carry you 'cross every stream I see
    And I'd bundle you in kindness
    Until you cling to me
    We'd sit beneath strong branches
    My arms would twine around
    I'd turn your green to emerald
    And give you gold all over the ground

    I'd pick you up and carry you 'cross every stream I see
    And I'd bundle you in kindness
    Until you cling to me
    We'd sit beneath strong branches
    My arms would twine around
    I'd turn your green to emerald
    And your skies full diamonds
    And give you gold all over the ground Writer/s: Brad Paisley, John Cash
