Mountain of Gold
Words and Music: Mark David Manders

She’s a little shy on first impression
But she’s the one who caught my attention long ago
She’s a rare and a precious jewel
And I know I’d be a fool to let her go
I don’t know why she looks up to me
I’m as common as a man can be, but she don’t care
And I don’t think that she understands
That I could never be a man without her there
I don’t need a mountain of gold
I found my treasure a long time ago
And nothing can take the place of this love that we share
She’s a West Texas wild flower
Springing up from an April shower, watch her shine
She’s more than a face behind the name
And she can drive me insane when she whispers mine
And when my world starts closing in
I know I can always depend on her there
It’s written in those big, brown eyes
There’s no way for her to disguise a love so rare
