Song Description

sort of a funky-pop country feel with some swagger, sing along chorus, harmonies, rock-fusion influenced.

Story Behind the Song

The inverse of Rags to Riches, the status quo becoming old news...actors, rock stars, out of fashion social royalty

Lyrics

Riches to Rags


You can't say what the future will bring
Fortune's won and lost with your name's familiar ring
And you can't stay in the limelight forever
It's been too long since you were with it and there's a fool born every minute

Chorus: It's a long way down from your limousine to the underground and riches to rags. Riches to rags and it's a long way home from the known to the unknown and riches to rags riches to rags

Once a jester was a king for a day he gave the beggars horses and watched them ride away while his servants waited on his every wish they were granted as he spoke until his dream went up in smoke...it disappeared

Chorus
repeat chorus (last lines changed to: and It's a long way home when you're goin' there alone)
