For The Money Lyrics

by Montgomery Gentry

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

Daddy almost made a livin'
With eighty acres and a plow
He could have bought that place twice over
Workin' for someone in town

Ah, but you should have seen him
In his fields at harvest time
You'd swear the gates of heaven opened
He was standin' first in line

You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Money comes and money goes
You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Oh, you gotta 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 whole right through my heart

You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Money comes and money goes
You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Oh, you gotta satisfy your soul

You know everybody's got a purpose
From mendin' bones to tendin' bar
You might say that I found mine
When I wrap my hands around this guitar

And I still wonder if I'm crazy
Tryin' to bring a dream to life
But I look forward to tomorrow
And I sleep pretty good at night

You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Money comes and money goes
You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
Oh, you gotta satisfy your soul

You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
You can be in it for the money
(For the money)
