Silver & Clay
 

The Sun's going down, the hills are in shadow
The wind softly sings through the pines
And a full moon is rising, it shines down upon me
I sit here alone with no one to call mine

I once had a girl, she was my reason for living
I loved her with body and soul
And I promised we'd marry when I made my fortune
I left for the hills to dig silver and gold

First Chorus
A man should hold on to his treasure
Or someone may steal it away
And leave him with nothing to show for his trouble
Take all his silver and leave him with clay
 

For years I was gone, and came back a rich man
But found out upon my return
That she'd married a sailor, and moved off to Boston
I'm left here alone, I've got no where to turn

Second chorus
A man should hold on to his treasure
Or someone may steal her away
And leave him  a Heart that is broken and empty
Take all his silver and leave him with clay
