I gotta a sister out in Charolette
Love her 'cause she's crazy in her head
I gotta brother, he was a pilot
Sometimes I pray that we'll see him again

Dad, he told me once
He said, "Son, only the fool stays out at night"
It's 4 a.m. and I'm out here on this avenue
Got no money but you know I'm doing alright, whoa, oh oh ya

You gotta know there ain't nothin' 'bout the money
That's ever gonna save your soul and the dreams of the young
They ain't never been nothing but the last request of the old

Heaven is the fiddle on the late night radio
Hit by redemption, brother, ain't you got no soul?
Whoa, oh oh oh ya, you gotta know

Her name was Amy, she was a friend of mine
She wanted to be a rich man's wife
She fell in love with cars and expensive wine
She must have forgotten what it means to live your life
Whoa, ho ho oh ya

You gotta know there ain't nothin' 'bout the money
That's ever gonna save your soul and the dreams of the young
They ain't never been nothing but the last request of the old

Heaven is the fiddle on the late night radio
Hit by redemption, brother, ain't you got no soul?
Whoa, oh oh oh ya, you gotta know

Withered hands playing on a steel guitar
Plays every evening till they turn them bar lights down
You know he's tired of them damned old cigarettes
Saving up his money so he can move on out of town, oh ya ya ya

You gotta know there ain't nothin' 'bout the money
That's ever gonna save your soul and the dreams of the young
They ain't never been nothing but the last request of the old

Heaven is the fiddle on the late night radio
Hit by redemption, brother, ain't you got no soul?
Whoa, oh oh oh ya, you gotta know

You gotta know there ain't nothin' 'bout the money
That's ever gonna save your soul and the dreams of the young
They ain't never been nothing but the last request of the old

Heaven is the fiddle on the late night radio
Hit by redemption, brother, ain't you got no soul?
Whoa, oh oh oh ya, you gotta know

You gotta know
