"Gordon, for the first time in his entire career, went back through his records and listened to them in sequence."
John Fowles

1.Im gonna get me two golden slippers

2.your smile is like the golden sun Id love to see you laugh

3.Heaven knows who keeps the golden rule

4.A little knowledge serves you well but the golden rule does not

5A.like birds of a feather We too have followed the golden sun....
5B.As I say to you, my brother
If you live to follow the golden sun You better beware


6.And on the golden prairie I rode the big combines

7.They're swept away by golden drops of dawn

8.And a few golden oldies and a little hoedown
And I think I know how to make you feel
