Buried Treasure lyrics

Album: Eyes That See in the Dark

As I'm walking behind this plough
I keep turning over memories
buried treasure
of a past once filled with you

this old ground, i know it's hard
and i've worked it so many times
and the rain it's been prayin' for
is fallin' from my eyes

waitin' for the settin' sun
when a hard day's work is done
we'd sit down
and rock the baby in 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 couldn't die??)
you couldn't be a simple wife
you had to lead the cheatin' life
and you led me down a road i hate to ride

now the neighbours, they all knew
they had seen him leave with you
but what they didn't see
was i followed close behind
and the next days paper read
that a man had been found dead
and the lady he'd been seen with,
they can't find.

and there's buried treasure
hidden in the ground
precious memories
of a love (of you and I??)
you couldn't be a simple wife
you had to lead the cheatin' life
and you led me down a road
i hate to ride.

(this verse echoes and fades slowly)
as I'm walkin' behind this plough
I keep turnin' over memories
buried treasure
of a past once filled with you
this old ground, I know is hard
and I've worked it so many times . . .
