lyrics

SILVER AND GOLD

I was born in the city, they call the big smoke
I don’t remember much til I was four years old
That’s when my mother and my father, went their separate ways
It’s the year I started school, didn’t like it from the very first day

We grew up in the country, later by the sea
Spent our days riding horses, bicycles bare feet
We used to watch those mountain fires burn from that old trampoline
We used to watch those mountain fires burn from that old trampoline

We didn’t always need to know which train we’re getting on
Didn’t always need to ride home the same old road
We had everything we wanted, no need for silver and gold

We built a cubby house, high up in the tree
Camp out on the weekends til it blew down in the wind
And when that rain fell we’d run down to the creek
collect tadpoles with our hands
When that rain fell we’d run down to the creek
collect tadpoles with our hands

We didn’t always need to know which train we’re getting on
Didn’t always need to ride home the same old road
We had everything we wanted, no need for silver and gold

When the trouble came to our door
When the cops they’re standing on the porch
We were quick on our feet, we were young and naive
Never knew things were harder than they seemed
We never knew things were harder than they seemed

My mother worked hard every day she did her very best
Visit my dad in the holidays in a dusty town out west
And he took my twenty dollars, to buy some milk and bread
He came home with a carton of beer and a pack of cigarettes

We didn’t always need to know which train we’re getting on
Didn’t always need to ride home the same old road
We had everything we wanted, no need for silver and gold
