lyrics

I don’t have any money and probably won’t any time soon
I spent it all on this record and keeping my banjo in tune
Cause man, strings expensive and so is booze
I’d probably be wasted if I had a dollar to lose
But I don’t so I wait till i’m with you to get
Y’all lift me up and remind me why
I wake up in the morning, why I lose sleep at night
It’s the rush that comes when a thousand voices collide
I’m learning quite quickly to just completely ignore
Those that live for money and look for nothing more
Cause I told you man all I got are these songs that I wrote
Scratched right on to plywood, receipts and sticky notes
And maybe one day I’ll find a beautiful girl
but for now I consider myself
The wealthiest man in the world

Cause if I’ve got you, if i’ve got you then I’m alright
If I’ve got you, if i’ve got you then I’m alright

If I emptied out my pockets you might be surprised to see
That there’s not much in there, which is very unlike me
Usually I’m prepared for the most varying of situations
Like getting stuck on a mountain or presenting to the nation
And I suppose if you gave me, the chance to do either
I’d take a deep breath and give a gentle reminder
That the dust that makes up even your strongest of bones
Once lay in a star until one day it explodes
So stay rooted my friends don’t forget where you’re from
It’s this planet that made you and it’s the only one
And I guess what I’m saying is that my pockets are empty
But not cause I’m complacent or because I’m overspending
It’s cause I needed to find a way to play you this song
To bring some people together, make some rights out of wrongs
I’ll bring em all together, turn this thing around
It doesn’t have to end like this, nobodies’ gotta drown
But it’s gotta be you and it’s gotta be now
It’s gotta be forever and I can show you how
It’ll take little courage, a whole lot of love
And you can be damn right certain it ain’t gonna fit like a glove
At least not at first man it’s gonna take time
It’ll take million voices, one million minds
And then maybe one day I’ll find a beautiful girl
But for now I consider myself
The wealthiest man in the world

Cause if I’ve got you, if i’ve got you then I’m alright
If I’ve got you, if i’ve got you then I’m alright

I’m learning quite quickly to just completely ignore
Those that live for money and look for nothing more
Cause I told you man all I got are these songs that I wrote
Scratched right on to plywood, receipts and sticky notes
