Kenny Rogers - Buried Treasures Lyrics




As I'm walkin' behind this plow
I keep turnin' over memories
Buried treasure of a past once filled with you

This old ground I know it's mine
And I've worked it so many times
And the rain it's been praying for
Is falling from my eyes

Waiting for the settin' sun
When a hard day's work is done
We'd sit down and rock the baby
And plan our dreams

But you turned it all around
With this other man you found
And you never thought I'd figure out your scheme

And there's buried treasure
Hidden in the ground
Precious memories of a love
That lived and died

You couldn't be the simple wife
You had to lead the cheatin' life
And you led me down a road I hate to ride

Now the neighbors they all knew
They had seen him leave with you
But what they didn't see
Was I followed close behind

And the next day's paper read
That a man had been found dead
And the lady he'd been seen with
That can't find

And there's buried treasure
Hidden in the ground
Precious memories of a love
That lived and died

You couldn't be the simple wife
You had to lead the cheatin' life
And you led me down a road I hate to ride

As I'm walkin' behind this plow
I keep turning over memories
Buried treasure of a past once filled with you

This old ground I know it's mine
And I've worked it so many times
And the rain it's been praying for
Is falling from my eyes

    "I got a lady in red at the back of my head but the woman in white is you"

  5. HH HH

    Now if the aim in your life is to settle me down,
    I couldn't change my point of view;
    I got a lady in red at the back of my head,
    But the woman in white is you.
    Do you want to be the only one,
    Fade away in the morning sun?
    I could love you all of my life;
    You are my wife; haven't I let you know?
    We don't need no buried treasure,
    No buried treasure; we don't need it.
    We don't stand on ceremony,
    But life is phony in spite of it.
    You can never be all you want to be
    When you're searching for gold;
    We don't need no buried treasure;
    I've still got you, still got you, still got you;
    I've still got you in my soul.
    Well, it's a long way down, and you've got to get up,
    You've got to figure on a master plan;
    You couldn't do it; if you don't get ready,
    You'll be beaten by the other man.
    Do you want to be the last one in;
    Play the game that you just don't win?
    I can see me making you cry, saying goodbye,
    But I could never let you go.
    We don't need no buried treasure,
    No buried treasure; we don't need it.
    We don't stand on ceremony,
    But life is phony in spite of it.
    You can never be all you want to be
    When you're searching for gold;
    We don't need no buried treasure;
    I've still got you, still got you, still got you;
    I've still got you in my soul.
    Well, you've taken my life in the palm of your hand â??
    Make you mine for another day;
    There ain't nobody that doesn't need anybody
    When the good times turn away.
    I don't want to be the lonely one,
    Fade away in the evening sun;
    I could love you all of my life;
    You are my wife; haven't I told you so?
    We don't need no buried treasure,
    No buried treasure; we don't need it.
    We don't stand on ceremony,
    But life is phony in spite of it.
    You can never be all you want to be
    When you're searching for gold;
    We don't need no buried treasure;
    I've still got you, still got you, still got you;
    I've still got you in my soul.
    We don't need it, we don't need it
    We don't need no buried treasure,
    No buried treasure; we don't need it.
    We don't stand on ceremony,
    But life is phony in spite of it.
    You can never be all you want to be
    When you're searching for gold;
    We don't need no buried treasure;
    I've still got you, still got you, still got you;
    I've still got you in my soul.

  17. Tills Mackie

    Awesome song alright, by great artists, BGs, Kenny Rogers

  18. Sundaresh Venugopal

    We don't need no buried treasure ,other than this one found by a bit of soul searching. Literally like an individual serenading his own soul to turn away from indulging in the meager, paltry and ever dwindling false pleasures that money can grudgingly and calculatingly only ill afford to buy, and to indulge and dive into the copious, ever increasing bounty that virtue freely, and lavishly bestows.

  19. Sheena Docherty

  27. doughesson

    There's another KR song also called Buried Treasure about a man finding out his wife had been cheating on him.
    It had a line about "...A man had been found dead and the woman he'd been seen with, they can't find."
    Haven't heard it since the Greatest Hits Vol 2 was stolen from me in '05.

    Kenny and the bee gees. u can't get any better than that

    Nicole Smith

    It's actually the Gatlin Brothers singing backup, BUT the bee gees wrote the song.

  61. drakulowski

    greetings from myself,you look young for this music

  62. Ross Wood

    this album is super talented people Gatlins, Lionel Richie, Bee gees, Dolly Parton

  63. Gururaj Rao

    fantabulous

  64. fearo153

    written by the Bee Gees

    ISAAC NEWTON

    fearo153 popularized by Kenny Rogers

    Ali Habarat

    In any case though they wrote the song but unfortunately do not agree with their voice this fact but with Kenny much better

    Ben Fontenot

    Ali Habarat what’s wrong with falsetto? Or falsettos? Maroon Five’s Adam Levine brought it back. But your voice is your voice....the one we call God gave it to us...and them

    Nicole Smith

    I think they wrote alot of songs for Kenny. They also wrote Islands in the stream for Kenny & Dolly. I know it's the Gatlin brothers singing backup but I can picture the bee gees doing them as well.

  65. Mark Sanchez

    Larry, Steve and Rudy Gatlin sang the background harmony vocals.

    Shelley Privott

    Love all of them

  66. Sirlete mandu penteado

    simplesmente amo todas as músicas do kenie rogers💜💛💚💖💖💟💟💖💟💟

  72. Pete Marshall

    awesome song by the Great Kenny Rogers!

    Robert brown

    miss kenny

    Todd McCarty

    Pete Marshall It's a real kick ass song from him! One of my favorites.

    Cheryl Bluhm

    Yes great song

  73. TravelinBand747

    A nice song melodically, but the lyrics make absolutely no sense.

    JJ McCartney

    TravelinBand747 actually the lyrics speak from the perspective of a couple who have made their love work in spite of no marriage certificate. They are defending their choice in comparison with people who race into things, crash and burn because their relationship lacks trust and a firm foundation.

    People who get married for the wrong reasons are chasing buried treasure.

    If you accept that premise, the lyric makes much more sense. In other words, we're not going to race to the altar while everybody else is defiling the institution of matrimony.

    We don't stand on ceremony, but life is phony in spite of it....(ceremony).

    Not knocking marriage per se', but being honest enough with themselves to and each other to guard against getting married to satisfy somebody else's agenda.

    I kind of get this song...and believe me, in April of 1984, I wish I hadn't stood on ceremony, because 4.5 years is an awful long time to crash and burn, and especially a long time to live in denial.

    Plus it rhymed. That's kind of a big deal.

    Bradley Rudi

    JJ McCartney wow ! Thank you for writing that !

    61gisele

    That's the whole secret of the Bee Gees. Great melody, senseless drivel. It made them rich.

  74. bratzmarv bass

    awesome

  75. BUNDA BOTTOMS

    GREAT KENNY ROGERS NUMBER 2 AFTER EVENING STAR FOR ME Thanks for sharing,Keith CHEERS

  76. JUST COUNTRY

    Great Kenny Rogers Song and Backing Vocals by The Great GATLIN BROTHERS Thanks for sharing,Keith CHEERS

    Shelley Privott

    JUST COUNTRY got to see Kenny and the Gatlins back in 1982..then Kenny alone in 2005..loved him both times

  77. Lasse 1964

    One of the best country pop album of all time.The best album from  me for 1983!

  78. Dave Wollenberg

    Gatlin brothers singin' backup.

    루가 1:43주님의 어머니

    +Dave Wollenberg I know they did. But it sounds like the Bee Gees did maybe because the Bee Gees produced it. I can hear the voice of Larry Gatlin though.

    Nicole Smith

    @루가 1:43주님의 어머니 I think the bee gees did the instruments along with writing the songs for the album

  79. ChihuahuaboyDH

    This is the "B"-side to "This Woman" - a great song by the man himself - Kenny Rogers!

    Bravo, Kenny Rogers!
