It's a long way down from riches to rags but if you can wear a cotton dress with pride
Then come on down from riches to rags if a poor man's love can keep you satisfied
Before you take my hand and tell your other man goodbye
Make sure you want to give up all the things that he can't buy
If you want my love there's no turning back it's a long way down from riches to rags
[ steel - guitar ]
Oh before you take my hand...
It's a long way down from riches to rags
