Easy Money

Todd Snider

 
G
He tried to look like he had a little bit of money 
     C
A drifter with a southern drawl 
              G
Well I could tell right away by the way he was runnin' 
          D
That the boy was just a beggin' to crawl. 
G
At least a junkie knows what he needs 
           C
You get a man all strung out on his own greed 
                  G
He'll give up everything he's got 
                D                 G
For just a one shot at havin' it all. 

 
G
He took every last cent of his savings 
C
On a trip to the local track 
G
He had a tip from a friend, bet it all down to win 
D
On a horse named heart attack. 
G
Well now he ain't no fool boys, he didn't bet it all 
C
So everything was cool when that horse took a fall 
G                                       D  
But then he turned around and blew the rest 
                      G
Trying to win it all back 

 
                 C
He wanted easy money 
                    G
It's sad but it's true 
                     D 
Everybody wants the most they can possibly get 
          G
For the least they can possibly do 
                      C
They want that easy money 
             G
I don't understand. 
                          D
God they scheme and they plan 
                           C                G
But they can't get their hands on no easy money. 

 

Now she'd been watching him from her table 
Not too soft but not too tough 
Well she figured by the money he'd been throwing around 
That he was damn sure good-looking enough 
So she worked her way over She shot him a wink 
He took his last five bucks He bought her a drink 
By the time they hit the Motel 6 
They figured they was in love (love love love...) 

 
She loved that easy money 
It's sad but it's true 
Everybody wants the most they can possible get 
For the least they can possibly do 
They want that easy money 
I don't understand. 
Lord God they scheme and they plan 
But they can't get their hands on that easy money. 

 

Tell it like it is, all right 

 
It must have been about two weeks later 
He got a call from a business friend 
Who'd found a sure-fire steal of an investment deal 
And honey guess what? He's gonna let both of us in 
So they took all their savings out of the bank 
And on the way home they stopped to gas up the tank 
She stepped in for some cigs 
And she never saw the f**ker again 

 
He got that easy money 
It's sad but it's true 
Everybody wants the most they can possible get 
For the least they can possibly do 
He thinks it's easy money 
I don't understand. 
You scheme and you plan 
You ain't got your hands on no easy money. 
You scheme and you plan 
You ain't got your hands on no easy money.
