Lyrics

Black Gold

Written By: Adam Box

At an Arizona gas pump, Mr. JT called me up and said,
I heard you're headed my way on that Eastern Highway.
Sick of breathing that L.A. air, and folks never really got us there,
I'll miss the weather but it's all good ... riddance to Hollywood!

Somehow this California Dream became a nightmare,
But now I'm waking up...

There's El Paso, and that Lone Star leading home,
Been away too long from them good ole Western songs,
Rough on the outside, but they've got diamonds in their soul,
Kinda like this rock 'n' roll - Our black gold.

We pass a ranch called "The Double-D" and give thanks them plastic girls won't trouble me, Southern hotties don't need silicone bodies.
Sunset ain't the only strip in the world, the ones down here got them Texas girls, I miss the ocean but it's all good ... riddance to Hollywood!

Somehow this California dream became a nightmare,
But now I'm waking up...

And there's San Antone, There's my yellow rose,
The hill country girl I've been waiting for,
She's rough on the outside but she's got diamonds in her soul,
Kinda like this rock 'n' roll - our black gold.

All that glitters ain't always gold, just cause it looks good don't make it so. The glitter sparkles and the glamor glows, but it's all for show, yeah,
A shiny sugar coat.

There's ole Houston, my El Dorado,
Light that charcoal and pour me something cold!
Tough on the outside you've got diamonds in your soul,
Made of sweat and pride and souls unsold, like rock and roll,
Our black gold.
