"House Of Stone" lyrics - MANDOLIN ORANGE

"House Of Stone"
(Andrew Marlin)

It's a churchyard auction
A sight to see
Where the eyes are big
And the odds are lean
The pockets all are empty
The chances are all gone
But there's a free bet yet on a house of stone
House of stone

Now some may sing sounds of Hallelujah
And dream about a mansion of gold
But to each be true and to each be known
My dreams all are resting on a house of stone
A house of stone

Say that devil's a sly one
With many kind friends
His riches are boundless
They know no end
Down in the valley
The shadow's grown
But in the light of Calvary sits a house of stone
A house of stone
