My Guru Says It’s Gold

Here’s a place to start
Digging one more hole
I’m looking for my heart
My guru says it’s gold
I bought in but I’m not sold
I’ve got junk but I won’t fold
I don’t know what I want
My guru says it’s gold

I’m watching Fred McDowell
Slide into some tunes
Washing troubles down
Getting set to move
It ain’t rock n roll
It ain’t even blues
It’s way down in the hole
My guru says it’s gold

Let me make you tea
Just before you go
Steeped in something sweet
Served in handmade bowls
It will make you warm
I know you’ve known the cold before
Have another sip, lean into my soul
My guru says, my guru says, my guru says it’s gold
