Rich Man North Of Richmond song

[Verse]

I’ve been selling my soul working all day
Overtime hours for bullshit pay
So I can sit out here and waste my life away
Drag back home and drown my troubles away

It’s a damn shame what the world’s gotten to
For people like me, people like you
Wish I could just wake up and it not be true
But it is oh, it is

Livin’ in the new world with an old soul
These rich men north of Richmond
Lord, knows they all just wanna have total control
Wanna know what you think, wanna know what you do
And they don’t think you know but I know that you do
‘Cause your dollar ain’t shit and it’s taxed to no end
‘Cause of rich men north of Richmond

I wish politicians would look out for miners
And not just minors on an island somewhere
Lord, we got folks in the street ain’t got nothin’ to eat
And the obese milkin’ welfare
But God, if you’re five foot three and you’re three hundred pounds
Taxes ought not to pay for your bags of fudge rounds
Young men are putting themselves six feet in the ground
‘Cause all this damn country does is keep on kicking them down

Lord, it’s a damn shame what the world’s gotten to
For people like me, people like you
Wish I could just wake up and it not be true
But it is oh, it is

Livin’ in the new world with an old soul
These rich men north of Richmond
Lord, knows they all just wanna have total control
Wanna know what you think, wanna know what you do
And they don’t think you know but I know that you do
‘Cause your dollar ain’t shit and it’s taxed to no end
‘Cause of rich men north of Richmond

I’ve been selling my soul working all day
Overtime hours for bullshit pay
