Silver & Gold

by adammormolsteinmusic

Here’s an old song by Fats Domino that I learned from watching the amazing Jim Oblon.  I was lucky enough to recruit Nathan McLeod to play the sax parts and I think it turned out great!

I was really drawn to fact that this song is over 50 years old and a lot of the ideas and themes are so relevant to today’s life.

This will be part of a collection I’m working on of old country/early rock songs.

Well I'm goin' to go out dancin' every night
Gonna see all the city lights
I'm gonna do everything with silver & gold
But I've got to hurry up before I grow too old

And I'm gonna take a trip around the world
Gonna to kiss all girls pretty girls
I'm gonna do everything with silver & gold
But I've got to hurry up before I grow too old

Well I'm gonna do a lot of things I know is wrong
I hope that I'm forgiven before I'm gone
And it will take a lot of prayers to save my soul
But I've got to hurry up before I grow too old

I'm gonna do a lot of things
I know that's wrong
So I hope that I'm forgiven before I've gone
And it will take a lot of prayers to save my soul
But I've got to hurry up before I grow too old
