      About "I Threw The Rest Away"

      Lyrics for Tracy Lawrence - "I Threw The Rest Away"

      I met him in a dive down in New Orleans
      I recognized his handsome face
      It was none of my business, but I had to know
      What he was doing in this kind of place
      Cause he used to have money, he used to have honeys
      He used to be Society's prince
      But he still wore a grin when I sat beside him
      And asked where all that money went

      [Chorus:]

      Some was spent on Gambling, a lot was spent on women
      A Little on some good Cabernet
      Three or Four divorces, at least that many horses
      who never left the starting gate
      Diamond rings and furs, swampland in New Jersey
      That week I spent a year in LA
      I hate to admit it, I threw the rest away
      ___
      He said money don't mean nothing in this game of life
      It's just a way of keeping score
      Show me a man whose got everything
      I'll show you one who wants even more
      Well so smoke em' when you got em'
      When you hit bottom, you gotta have a reason to smile
      You can have a little piece of the rock
      I'll take a little piece of mind
      (Chorus)
      He said to me
      Diamond rings and furs, swampland in New Jersey
      That week I spent a year in LA
      I hate to admit it, I threw the rest away
