This song was inspired by books I read on the death of Elvis, and the life of Jim Morrison..it seems it was the fame and money, not the drugs, that killed them..or at least that was my conclusion..

ELVIS PRESLEY HAD SO MUCH GOLD

PEOPLE CALLED HIM THE KING

HE HAD THE DIAMONDS THE GIRLS AND THE CARS

HE DIDN'T NEED ANOTHER THING

 

HOW COULD A MAN THE WHOLE WORLD LOVED

FEEL SO ALL ALONE?

HOW COULD HE THROW AWAY HIS GIFT FROM GOD

WATCH HIS OWN LIFE SINK LIKE A STONE?

 

I'VE CONCLUDED FROM ALL THAT I'VE READ

SOMETIMES TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH

CAUSE' WHEN YOU'VE GOT THAT MUCH GOLD

YOU CAN LOSE THAT GOLDEN TOUCH

                        CHORUS

SOMETIMES TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH

SOMETIMES TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH

WHEN YOU'VE GOT THAT MUCH GOLD

YOU CAN LOSE THAT GOLDEN TOUCH

                 SOLO

JIM MORRISON HAD SO MUCH FAME

HE WAS THE LIZARD KING

HE HAD HIS MUSE HIS BOOZE AND HIS BLUES

HE DIDN'T NEED ANOTHER THING

 

HOW COULD A MAN THE WHOLE WORLD KNEW

FEEL SO ALL ALONE?

HOW COULD HE THROW AWAY HIS GIFT FROM GOD

WATCH HIS OWN LIFE SINK LIKE A STONE?

 

NOW I'VE CONCLUDED FROM ALL THAT I'VE SEEN

SOMETIMES TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH

CAUSE WHEN YOU'VE GOT THAT MUCH GOLD

YOU CAN LOSE THAT GOLDEN TOUCH
