POOR MAN'S GOLD (Mac Davis) Elvis Presley - 1969** Mac Davis - 1974 It's the feeling I get looking down at my brand new baby Holding on to Daddy's thumb just as tightly as he can hold And it's hearing people say he looks a lot like his Daddy These things are a poor man's gold It's the twinkle in the eyes of the grey haired old man we call Grandpa Telling tales to the kids that get taller every time they're told And it's knowing that for awhile he's no longer lonely These things are a poor man's gold It's the smell of honeysuckle in the springtime It's the silence of a freshly fallen snow It's the sound of children laughing in the sunshine It's a crisp Autumn night with a million stars all aglow And it's the sweet, sleepy sound of your warm and gentle breathing As you cling to me in the night to keep away the cold And it's the softness of your body there in the darkness These things are a poor man's gold Honey, these precious things are a poor man's gold **Elvis Presley considered the song for his sessions at American Sound Studio in Memphis on January 21st 1969. But he never recorded the vocal track in full, only completing the opening line as follows: "It's the feeling that I get looking down at my brand new baby Holding........"
