Barrington Levy – Better Than Gold Lyrics

Barrington Levy Better Than Gold Lyrics

I don’t know where they go
Where they go

Where are the children of men?
Questions that we did not know (Did not know)
When will we see them again?
Questions that we did not know (That we did not know)

For queens and kings and shining things they gave our souls
But they soon learned that freedom’s better than gold, oh (Better than gold)
Inna the days of old (Inna like the days of old)
These are the tales untold

Send for the servant of truth
For all of their sins we bleed (Sins we bleed)
The world will deliver the yoot
That’s why they never let them read (They never let them read)

A prince, a king will rise and sing to seize their souls
As the world turns, the freedom is better than gold (Better than gold)
Inna like the days of old (Inna like the days of old)
These are the tales untold

My God, my one salvation
My story, my foundation
My life and all creation
‘Cross the mountain over the sea

For what was then will rise again to seize our souls
And they will learn that freedom’s better than gold, oh (Better than gold)
Inna the days of old (Inna like the days of old)
Ooh, these are the tales untold

Watch dem, watch dem, watch dem erase and burn
Our place in history
We have to come re-educate and learn
Our names for all to see

Those kings and queens will be revealed within our souls
As the world turns, the freedom is better than gold (Better than gold)
Inna like the days of old (Inna like the days of old)
These are the tales untold
Inna like the days of old

But they soon learn that freedom’s better than gold, oh (Better than gold)
Inna the days of old (Inna like the days of old)
These are the tales untold
