I been sinkin' like a rock in this high society
'Cause all that means so much to them, don't mean shit to me
If I were into money, fame and power, I'd be sold
But I know I tried, and I just can't find that solid country gold

Now I was born in Nashville but I left there long ago
'Cause they built Music City by sacrificing soul
L. A. Ain't much different, 'cept they got them fancy clothes
And there's nary a sight or a leaving light of solid country gold

Chorus:
They say country music ain't quite all it used to be
But they can't see the country for all the goddamned trees
If you give to me a guitar ans my woman on the road
I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold

Now baby, I been thinkin' 'bout where you and I should go
You sell your apartment, and I'll shake off my load
We'll take it down to Texas where we'll kiss that Yellow Rose
And find ourselves some lovin' in solid country gold

Repeat chorus twice

Yes, I'll give to you my family, my solid country gold
