MONTGOMERY GENTRY lyrics : "For The Money"

Ah, let me tell you a little story about my family

Daddy almost made a living with eighty acres and a plow

He could've bought that place twice over working for someone in town
Ah, but you should've seen him in his fields at harvest time
He'd swear the gates of heaven opened and he was standing first in line


You can't be in it for the money
Money comes and money goes

You can't be in it for the money
Oh, you got to satisfy your soul


I grabbed the world when I turned eighteen
I turned it over and I shook it hard
I filled my pockets up with money

But it burned a hole right through my heart

You can't be in it for the money

Money comes and money goes
You can't be in it for the money
Oh, you got to satisfy your soul


You know everybody's got a purpose
From mending bones to tending farms

You might say that I found mine
When I wrap my hands around this guitar


And I still wonder if I'm crazy
Trying to bring a dream to life
But I look forward to tomorrow

And I sleep pretty good at night

You can't be in it for the money

Money comes and money goes
You can't be in it for the money
Oh, you got to satisfy your soul


You can't be in it for the money
You can't be in it for the money
