Cash Flow Blues

I got money baby
I got money fast
I got money baby
Get it now cuz money never last (You better get on it, though)

When I was a young boy
Down in Atlantic City
A man put a twenty-dollar bill in my pocket
Said son don’t you gamble like me
And now I’m an old boy
With nobody caring for me
So I’ll let it ride on the dice tonight
For the thrill and a free whiskey

I ain’t got no money
I ain’t got no cash
I ain’t got no money
Had some but it vanished in a flash (But I swear to God I had some, though)

From the burning sun in Barstow
To the cold in Somerville
I played the galley hand with the working man
While sleeping in a coupe Deville
But I don’t mind living easy
And I got time to kill
Gotta bottle of brine and a working mind
To fill a hat full a dollar bills

Throw down all your money
Lay down all that green
Bet it on me honey
I’m burning up like kerosene (Yea I’m burning up)

Ain’t nothing too fancy
On this lonely side of town
But when them Aces fall and you try to call
I’ll raise you pound for pound
Ain’t no sense getting even
Though it’s such a pretty sound
Cuz all that’s true in this life, babe
Is if you ain’t up, your down
