TREASURES THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY
Intro:    

1st VERSE:
A                                 D
While driving one day through the quiet country side.
   E                         D         A
An old man was walking, so I offered a ride.
A                              D 
His face was all wrinkled, his hair turned to gray
    A                          E         A 
And these are the words - that he had to say.


2nd VERSE:
A                                D
I may look like a beggar but I'm rich as a king.
       E                         D         A 
What I have in my heart gives me reason to sing.
A                               D             
I will join there with Jesus so why should I sigh.
    A                            E           A
For these are the treasures that money can't buy


CHORUS:
  E                        D         A
Money is worthless when a soul is at stake
    E                          D            E
If gold bought redemption, how much would it take.
       A                           D
But He loved me and saved me and I can't explain why.
     A                       D            A
And these are the treasures, these are the treasures,
E            A
that money can't buy.
 

Instrumental break -

3rdVERSE:   
So if you look at my garments and you notice they're torn.
Well I've a new Royal Garment that's never been worn.
And the cabin I live in is home till I die.
But I've a mansion in glory that money can't buy.

CHORUS:

ENDING:  
       A                         D
Yes He loved me and saved me and I can't explain why.
    A                        D            A      
And these are the treasures, these are the treasures,
E            A
that money can't buy.
