Jesus like cash

 
I've never sang in one of them old Honky Tonks  
Can't say I have paid the cost,  
Of what them great Cowboys lost,  
 
while out punching the trail  
cuz I've never done it myself  
 
But theres something about me
since i was a child  
Cant help feeling free n wild
 
Roaming the plains,
 really living lifes game ,
  blowing across the land
 like an old dusty tumbleweed
 idk why its just something  
my soul seems to need  
 
Keep your eyes to the sky  
and your feet on the ground,  
try to stay around that fine line  
between hell bent and heaven bound,  
Help out who you can  
when you get the chance,  
plan for tomorrow and let go of your past,
 not saying you need to be country,
You just need a little bit of outlaw like waylon And some jesus like cash!
 
I dont know, whats at the end of the line,  
n Im no body to show anyone else,  
but I know what's coming for mine...
 
  It isn't a secret  
Don't worry about money or time
 You dont get to keep it,  
And buddy watch how you spend em,  
 N you'll be just fine
 
 I've never been the kind to think about even stealing a dime
 no I never rode in a gang  like ol jesse james,  
I've rode a train never stood one up,  
was broke a few times
 never known it to get that tough,  
 
stolen a few hearts,   and a couple I broke in  two,  
ya ive hurt some of the best people I ever knew  
There's something in my spirit that won't let me break away  
just got to keep living what I am day to day,  
ill find out who that is when I get there, till then it aint up to me so I Dont care.  
 
Call me what you wish,
after all my time
 I think Ive got the life's answers
widdled down to this,  
 
Keep your eyes to the sky
 and your feet on the ground,  
stay around that fine line  
between hell bent and heaven bound,  
Help out who you can when you get the chance,
 plan for tomorrow and let go of your past,  
not saying you need to be country,
 You just need a little bit of outlaw like waylon
 And some Jesus like cash!
