Jimi Yamagishi: Tunes & Lyrix

You’ll find a Heart of Gold

(Jimi Yamagishi)
Guess it really doesn’t matter
I’m a sucker to trust
I’ll help someone up the ladder
N’ get left in the dust
Seems I’m always the side dish
Not the main entrée
But if that’s the way God planned it,
Well then that’s okay

Cuz I, have a reason to be
It takes a lotta dirt, to support a tree
And the truth, we all know
If you dig really deep you’ll find a heart of gold

Yeah I’ll get a little greasy
Tryin’ t’ fix your car
I know it won’t be easy
But it ain’t too hard
And if you pass me on the highway
I will understand
‘Cuz I’m just another footnote
Not part of your plan

Cuz I, have a reason to be
It takes a lotta dirt, to support a tree
And the truth, we all know
If you dig really deep you’ll find a heart of gold

Well a bridge is well connected
But it watches the world go by
And everyone that crosses
Leaves a piece of themselves behind
All the grit and the dust and the blood and the rust and the hope and despair and the water and air become part of our lives and we all have a share

Cuz I, have a reason to be
It takes a lotta dirt, to support a tree
And the truth, we all know
If you dig really deep you’ll find a heart of gold
