Turn Your Money Green

This song is by Tom Rush and appears on the album Take A Little Walk With Me (1966).

I was in Missouri, y'would not let me be
Yeah and I was in Missouri, baby, you would not let me be
Now and I could not rest content till I come to Tennessee.

I been down so long looks like up to me
And I been down so long looks like up to me
You know the gal I love, baby she don't care for me

I told her stick with me baby and I'll turn your money green,
Stick with me baby and I'll turn your money green
I'm gonna give you more money baby than Rockefeller ever seen

Well if you're talkin' about big hearted, I swear I'm an honest man
Yeah, you're sitting 'round talkin' 'bout big hearted now, know I'm an honest man
Now and I give my baby money, broke her apron strings.

Woo and I'd holler bloody murder but the doggone town's too small
Yeah and I'd holler woo, but the town too small
You know the girl I love, well she don't love me at all

Now I looked over muddy waters and I believe I spied dry land
Now I would wade in muddy waters baby, tryna reach dry land
I said if you don't like me baby then let's shake hand in hand

Now if you found some woman's lovin', measure it in a cup
Yeah, and found some woman's lovin', go and measure it in a cop
Now You know mine went and left me, and left me in hard luck.

I was in Missouri babe, y'would not let me be
I was in Missouri, women would not let me be
Now and I could not rest content until I come to Tennessee.
