lyrics

Well it started on a front porch day,
I was picking away my troubles, wishing away the rain
And when it came upon, the telephone rang
It sounds like three time the money, two time the twang.

Come on burn, sunshine burn
I'm working for what I need the most
Cause when the time is right and the moon is high
I'll have a pretty girl by my side
It's three time the money, two time the twang.

So I packed my shirts and I tuned my guitar
I hit the road running drinking beer from a jar
And when it came upon, the Whiskey Jack sang
Sounds like three for the money, two for the twang

Come on burn sunshine burn
I'm working for what I need the most
Cause when the time is right and the moon is high
I'll have a pretty girl by my side
It's three for the money, two for the twang

Oh the traveling life ain't good you see
It's just me in the shadows of what I used to be
And though the sun burns hot I stay for this thing
We're here for the money, here for the twang

Come on burn sunshine burn
I'm working for what I need the most
Cause when the time is right and the moon is high
I'll have a pretty girl by my side
We're here for the money, here for the twang
