Bobby Goldsboro - Gold Hill Hotel Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Up the stairs, in 305,
  • A baby clings to life in desperation
  • While his cryin’ mother holds him to her breast,
  • And thinks of her humiliation.
  • Forced to leave her home because
  • Her folks just couldn’t ruin their reputation.
  • And life goes on in Virginia City,
  • In the Gold Hill Hotel.
  • Down the hall, a young man
  • Starts to throw away his life in 302.
  • Fillin’ up his mind with smoke
  • And make-believe that never can come true.
  • ’Cause he says society’s a drag,
  • And he wants no part of the things they do.
  • And life goes on in Virginia City,
  • In the Gold Hill Hotel.
  • Down the street, two children play,
  • It’s another lovely day.
  • At the Courthouse, there’s a picnic on the ground.
  • People havin’ fun, there’s a smile for everyone.
  • Isn’t life so very peaceful in our town?
  • Down the stairs, two newlyweds
  • Begin their lives together in 203.
  • Unaware that right next door,
  • An old man lies upon the floor in agony.
  • Clingin’ to his life, and locked inside his room,
  • But Death begins to turn the key.
  • And life goes on in Virginia City,
  • In the Gold Hill Hotel.
  • Yesterday, they say the body of a man was found
  • Behind the door marked, “402”.
  • They say he took his life because he found out
  • That his wife had been untrue.
  • But the desk clerk never looked up from his book
  • “Because,” he said, “it’s nothin’ new.”
  • And life goes on in Virginia City,
  • In the Gold Hill Hotel.
  • Yeah, life goes on in Virginia City,
  • In the Gold Hill Hotel.
