Wealth Won’t Save Your Soul

January 19, 2020

“Wealth Won’t Save Your Soul,” written by Hank Williams, recorded by him in 1946 and released the next year. Hank Williams (vocalist),  James “Guy” Willis (guitar), Vic Wallis (accordion), Charles “Skeeter” Willis (fiddle), and Charles “Indian” Wright (bass).

For when God calls from His home up on high
To your earthly wealth you must say goodbye
Then it’s useless to you if you’ve strayed from the fold
For my friend, it won’t save your poor wicked soul
