[Verse]
    Em7                                                            C   D
The story is told of the power of gold and its lure on the unsuspecting
   Em7                                                                C
It glitters and shines it badgers and blinds and constantly needs protecting
B7                      Em   B7  Em            Em7        D       Cmaj7
Balance the cost of the soul you lost With the dreams you lightly sold

[Refrain]
D   C   D Em  B7  N.C          Em7 
Are you under-r   The power of gold?

[Verse]
Em7                                              Em                     C   D
The letters and calls got you climbing the walls and everyone wants a favor
     Em7                                                                       C 
They beg to remind you of times left behind you but you know the past is a loser
B7                         Em   B7   Em          Em7      D       Cmaj7
The face you're wearing is different now and the days run hot and cold

[Refrain]
D   C   D Em  B7  N.C.         Em7   
Are you under-r   The power of gold?

[Verse]
         Em7                                 Em                           C    D
You're a creature of habit run like a rabbit scared of a fear you can't name
     Em7                                    Em                          C   D
Your own paranoia is looming before you but nobody thinks that it's a game
Em7                     Em   B7  Em            Em7        D       Cmaj7
Balance the cost of the soul you lost With the dreams you lightly sold

[Refrain]
     D    C       D      Em  B7  N.C.            Em7   
Then tell me that you're fre-e   Of the power of gold

[Outro]
    Em7                                                                 C         D
The women are lovely the wine is superb but there's something about the song that disturbs you
