Joe Ely – Rich Man, Poor Boy lyrics

Well a poor boy's got one thing on a rich man, honey
He's got time to feel,
He don't have to deal with all his money
So if you want me, ya gotta take me just the way that I am.
I'm a poor boy, my heart's on fire, I'm a travelin' man.

If you wanna be lonely,
Sleepin in bed with all your diamond rings
Go ahead and find someone
With a heart as cold as stone
But don't come a knockin' when you wake up all alone

Because a poor boy's got one thing on a rich man, honey
He don't have to pretend,
He's got the world to win with all his money
So if you want me, ya gotta take me just the way that I am.
I'm a poor boy, my heart's on fire, I'm a travelin' man...

If you wanna be lonely,
Sleepin in bed with all your diamond rings
Go ahead and find someone
With a heart as cold as stone
But don't come a knockin' when you wake up all alone

Because a poor boy's got one thing on a rich man, honey
He knows the gift of love
Is a bundle above a whole mountain of money
So if you want me, ya gotta take me just the way that I am.
I'm a poor boy, my heart's on fire, I'm not a candy stand...
