lyrics

Well, I took a hundred dollar bill,
Threw it in the river today.
Well, I watched that hundred dollar bill,
Watched it float away.
I said this little paper’s brought me nothing but trouble,
Somebody’s got to draw the line.
They say I blew my money because It wasn’t a friend of mine.

Well, Annie’s a straight shooter,
That much I can guarantee.
But Janie, she ain’t like that,
She knows just what she wants from me.
You know I ain’t one to turn down love but,
Hell, she made love a crime.
They say I left Janie because she wasn’t a friend of mine.

Oh, everybody knows its time.
Oh, time to live it right.
Oh, everybody knows its time.
Oh, time to live it right.

I put the pedal down,
Hit the open road today.
And I drove on past the house,
Where Janie and I used to stay.
I said it ain’t the same since I made my name,
Everybody wants a slice of this pie.
They said I skipped town because it wasn’t a friend of mine.

They said I skipped town because It wasn’t a friend of mine (repeat x3)
