(Carl Perkins - Greg Perkins - Stan Perkins)

Well, I met an old man walkin down the street
His clothes were torn and tattered with sandals on his feet
And I stopped to help him and lend him a hand
He said- I love you so much but you must understand.

Chorus:
Silver and gold might buy you a home
But things of this world, they won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold.

And he said to me let's rest for a while
Cause I have some good news to share with you child
He said you can't change this old worldbut people need to know
That a dear Savior died here a long long time ago.

Chorus:
Silver and gold might buy you a home
But things of this world, they won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be bought back with silver and gold.

Spoken:
His eyes shown like diamonds and his smile was heaven sent
His hair was long and flowing and his back was slightly bent
Sang:
And I knew he knew it 'cause that day I changed
And as I watched Him walk on I forgot to get His name.

He said silver and gold can't buy you a home
When this life has ended and your time is gone
But you can live in a world where you'll never grow old
And things can't be bought there with silver and gold.

And time can't be bought back with silver and gold...
