    Lyrics

    (Shawn Camp, Randy Hardison, Wynn Varble)

    My oldest brother Tommy
    Was a lineman rest his soul
    His job was hanging hot wires
    On them power company poles
    I said with all of that high voltage
    Don't it scare you half to death?
    He said it makes me kinda nervous
    But I just can't help myself.

    Chorus:
    It pays big money and boy I'm into that
    It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
    I'll tell you sonny, you ought to see my bank account
    It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

    My dear departed cousin
    Used to put in forty hours
    Changing all them light bulbs
    On them television towers
    Every morning bright and early
    He'd climb up in the sky
    And I didn't understand it
    So one day I asked him why, he said.

    Chorus:
    It pays big money and boy I'm into that
    It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
    I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
    It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

    --- Instrumental ---

    My late Uncle Charlie
    Was a demolition man
    And he traveled all over the country
    Blasting holes in this great land
    And he carried a case of dynamite
    Everywhere he went
    And he'd smoke them big long cigars
    'Til it got the best of him, but.

    Chorus:
    It pays big money and boy I'm into that
    It pays big money if you're willin' to take a chance
    I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
    It paid big money but he sure can't spend it now.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Now the moral of this story
    Is don't go getting' yourself killed
    Be kind to your rich relatives
    And they might just leave you in their will
    That pays big money having foolish kin.

    It pays big money, I guess I owe it all to them
    I'll tell you sonny you ought to see my bank account
    It pays big money think I'll go spend some of it now...

    --- Instrumental with ad libs to fade ---
