Lyrics

ITINERANT POET

If it weren't for the money, I'd walk out that door today,
leave my ego behind me and the ties that bind me to stay,
be a Wal-Mart greeter or a good new repeater for pay.
If it weren't for the money, I'd walk out that door today.

And I'd be an itinerant poet. Maybe I'd visit your town.
I'd read and I'd sing for Chautauquas
if there were any Chautauquas around.

If it weren't for the money I'd sell everything that I own,
my treadmll, my big-screen t.v. and my cellular phone.
I'd donate the proceeds to the indigent songwriter's home.
If it weren't for the money, I'd sell everything that I own.

chorus

If it weren't for the money, I'd buy me a nice flock of sheep.
They would graze on the hillside by the window of my castle-keep.
Every night by the moonlight I would count them and
drift off to sleep.
If it weren't for the money, I'd buy me a nice flock of sheep.
