FOR ALL THE GOLD 

LYRICS By DAVE GUNNING & JAMIE  ROBINSON.

Click lyrics in bold for supporting explanations and references.

It’s still up there in the hills where the scars haven’t healed

With the cold winds blowing up from down below

As the sunlight on St. Mary’s makes a ribbon through the trees

And it reaches to the end of the rainbow

Is there anything we’ve learned from all we’ve lost
Is it buried in the dirt from digging deep


Five years worth of paycheques will never cover up the costs
Of forever gone and nothing left to keep


For all the gold, for all the gold

This lifeblood running water can’t be bought or sold

For all the gold, for all the gold

We will never give it up

For all the gold

They tell us not to worry it’s not our grandfather’s mine

It’s the only bit of truth we’ve heard them say

Cause they can dig 27 tonnes just get an ounce this time
Nothing like it was in my grandfather’s day


For all the gold, for all the gold

This lifeblood running water can’t be bought or sold

For all the gold, for all the gold

We will never give it up

For all the gold

Can we live with the decision to let this disappear
As truck and shovel push it all aside


While we watch the forest sink exactly how we fear
As the poison trickles down the mountain side


For all the gold, for all the gold

This lifeblood running water can’t be bought or sold

For all the gold, for all the gold

We will never give it up

For all the gold, for all the gold

This lifeblood running water can’t be bought or sold

For all the gold, for all the gold

We will never give it up

 

For all the gold
