One For The Money Lyrics

Artist: Kris Kristofferson
Album: Spooky Lady's Sideshow

I've seen you standing there stunned in the spotlight
I've seen the sweat streak the pain on your face
Cause you're caught like a clown in a circle of strangers
Who do you screw to get out of this place

Chorus:
It's one for the money
And too far to go
Three fingers of whiskey
Just for the soul
That lady you're pleasin'
Is hungry and cold
Don't look in her eyes
You'll see what you sold

Too many bodies in too many bars
Too many feelings are fallin' behind
Cause you're easy to fool when you're lost in the stars
Shoot out that spotlight before you go blind

Chorus:
It's one for the money
And too far to go
Three fingers of whiskey
Just for the soul
That lady you're pleasin'
Is hungry and cold
Don't look in her eyes
You'll see what you sold
