      About "Money Ain't Everything"

      Lyrics for Clay Walker - "Money Ain't Everything"

      Let's go to Louisiana boys
      Way down in Louisiana where the moss and cypress grew
      You'd find old Jack in a shotgun shack
      In the back of the black bayou
      Some folks called him crazy but I knew better than that
      He kept a hundred dollar bill tucked away in the brim
      Of his dirty old cowboy hat

      Jack told me a story when I was ten years
      He said there was once a fool tried to swim this swamp
      With his back weighted down with gold
      He said you should've seen that alligator smile
      He had a meal fit for a king
      But he need up on my table son, money ain't everything

      He said there's only one way into this world
      And one way out it's true
      You either eat the alligator
      Or he's gonna eat you
      There's people livin' in a high-rise
      That'll never hear a robin sing
      What good is first place when you're in a rat race
      Money ain't everything

      Little Maggie May lay dying, her heart was about to go
      When her daddy found a sack on the porch out back
      With a half a million dollars in gold
      They still talk about the stranger who saved her life that spring
      No name on the note but someone wrote, money ain't everything

      He said there's only one way into this world
      And one way out it's true
      You either eat the alligator
      Or he's gonna eat you
      There's people livin' in a high-rise
      That'll never hear a robin sing
      What good is first place when you're in a rat race
      Money ain't everything

      No name on the note but I know who wrote, money ain't everything
