God Must Have My Fortune Laid Away

This song is by Johnny Cash and appears on the album Hymns From The Heart (1962) and on the album The Gospel Collection (1992).

(God has my fortune laid away)
Oh the world is full of people with money just to burn
Affording all the things in life for which a man might yearn
Some can take life easy but I live from day by day
God has my fortune laid away
I search for sunshine every day but there always comes the rain
The hope over my horizon was smoke without a flame
Pockets that stay empty dreams that go astray
God has my fortune laid away
(God has my fortune laid away laid away)
Oh how often I have wondered why some things have to be
Some people live in riches while some live just like me
The more I try to work and save the more I have to pay
But God has my fortune laid away (laid away)
I search for sunshine...
