(God has my fortune laid away)

Oh the world is full of people with money just to burn

Affording all the things in life for which a man might yearn

Some can take life easy but I live from day by day

God has my fortune laid away

I search for sunshine every day but there always comes the rain

The hope over my horizon was smoke without a flame

Pockets that stay empty dreams that go astray

God has my fortune laid away

(God has my fortune laid away laid away)

Oh how often I have wondered why some things have to be

Some people live in riches while some live just like me

The more I try to work and save the more I have to pay

But God has my fortune laid away (laid away)

I search for sunshine...
