  • Gold road's sure a long road
    Winds on through the hills for fifteen days

    The pack on my back is aching
    The straps seem to cut me like a knife

    Gold road's sure a long road
    Winds on through the hills for fifteen days

    The pack on my back is aching
    The straps seem to cut me like a knife

    I'm no clown, I won't back down
    I don't need you to tell me what's going down
    Down, down, down, down, da-down, down, down
    Down, down, down, down, da-down, down, down

    I'm standing alone
    I'm watching you all
    I'm seeing you sinking
    I'm standing alone
    You're weighing the gold
    I'm watching you sinking
    Fool's gold

    These boots were made for walking
    The Marquis de Sade don't wear no boots like these

    Gold's just around the corner
    Breakdown's coming up 'round the bend

    Sometimes you have to try to get along, dear
    I know the truth and I know what you're thinking
    Down, down, down, down, da-down, down, down

    I'm standing alone
    I'm watching you all
    I'm seeing you sinking
    I'm standing alone
    You're weighing the gold
    I'm watching you sinking
    Fool's gold
    Fool's gold

    I'm standing alone
    I'm watching you all
    I'm seeing you sinking
    I'm standing alone
    You're weighing the gold
    I'm watching you sinking
    Fool's gold
