Panning for Gold

I saw God by the river
Pannin' for gold
I saw God by the river
Weary and old

He said "Son,
I used to know where I put things.
I used to know."

I saw God in the Forest
Teachin' Tai Chi
To the trees in the wind
Bowing to the sea

He said "Son,
I used to know where I put things.
I used to know."

I saw God on the mountain
Tearin' at the sky
I saw God on the mountain
With tears in his eyes

He said "Son,
I used to know where I put things.
I used to know.

"I could have shown you
All the beauty in the world
But now I need you to show me."
