||"Black Gold" was written in 2007 by Ruth Anderson with lyrics by Barbara Swant. This is for Soprano or Alto voice with piano. Modern lyrics.. almost country western in style. Cute tune for the appropriate setting. BLACK GOLD* is black dirt, ‘it feeds the country’. This song, written with 3 verses and refrain, is a celebration of farming. It has a country Americana sound that can easily be played on keyboard or guitar. Very fun to sing by all ages. A crowd pleaser!
