You Got Gold.
 a                                                                   e
Is there ever enough, space between us, to keep us both honest and true,
why is it so hard, to just sit in the yard, and stare at the sky so blue

I've got a new way of walking and a new way of talking,
Honey, when I'm around you.
But it gives me the blues, when I've got some good news,
      e                           a
And you're not there to bring it to.

Life is a blessin, it's a delicatessen, of all the little favors you do

All wrapped up together, no matter the weather,

Baby you always come through,

It's a measure of treasure, that gives me the pleasure,

Of loving you the way I do,

And you know I would gladly say, I need your love badly,

And bring these little things to you

                d                   a 
Cause you got gold, Gold inside of you, 
          d                   a
You got gold, Gold inside of you, 
            e                    a 
Well I got some, Gold inside me too,

Well I'm thinkin I'm knowin, that I gotta be goin,

You know I hate to say so long,

It gives me an ocean of mixed up emotion, I'll have to work it out in a 


Well I'm leavin a lot, for the little I got,

But you know a lot of little will do,

And if you give me your love, I'll let it shine up above,

And light my way back home to you


Chorus again only use "wheels" instead of gold.
