    Lyrics

    oh, let me tell you a little story about my family

    daddy almost made a livin'
    with eighty acres and a plow
    he could have bought that place twice over
    workin' for someone in town

    oh, but you should have seen him

    in his fields at harvest time
    he'd swear the gates of heaven opened
    and he was standin' first in line

    you can't be
    you can't be in it for the money
    (for the money)
    can't be
    money comes and money goes
    you can't be
    you can't be in it for the money
    oh you've gotta satisfy your soul

    i grabbed the world when i turned eighteen
    i turned it over and i shook it hard
    i filled my pockets up with money
    but it burned a hole right through my heart

    (chorus)

    you know everybody's got a purpose
    from mendin' bones to tendin' bars
    you might say that ive found mine
    when i wrap my hands around this guitar

    and i still wonder if im crazy
    tryin to bring a dream to life
    but i look forward to tomorrow
    and i sleep pretty good at night

    (chorus)

    can't be
    you can't be in it for the money
    (for the money)
    can't be
    you can't be in it for the money
    (for the money)
