Ain’t No Money — Roseanne Cash

Ain't No Money — Roseanne Cash

Every day now I hear people say
My ship is sailing, could be any day
Any day now
It might not feel so blue

My baby tells me, “Stop and look around
If you ain’t careful, hon, you’re trouble-bound”
Run home for cover
And you might not find none there

He say there ain’t no money
In this running around
Can’t make money
Staying at home
And there ain’t no future
In the way that it feels today

Baby, there ain’t no money
Baby, there ain’t no money
Baby, there ain’t no money
In the ones that you really love

I try and tell ’em, baby, straight and true
No love or money tells you what to do
You’re born to ramble, baby
That’s what I was, too

Just breaking even even if I lose
Ol’ lucky seven put his hold on you
I got your number, baby
Any way you move

Baby, there ain’t no money
And that’s for sure
Ain’t no money
Behind no doors

And there ain’t no trouble
That a poor boy won’t go through

Baby, there ain’t no money
Baby, there ain’t no money
Baby, there ain’t no money
In the ones that you really love

No running around
Just staying at home
