PHIL ALVIN lyrics - Stuff They Call Money

PHIL ALVIN
"Stuff They Call Money"
(William Broonzy)
feat. Dave Alvin

I got on a streetcar one day, the conductor held out his hand,
You can't get no free ride here, man don't you understand
You must have, stuff they call money
You must have, down in your pocket
You must have, the stuff they call money
Don't you can't ride on here

See the girl goin' down the street, she look so nice and neat,
I looked around at my buddy, he say "You know that can't be beat"
But you must have, stuff they call money
You must have, down in your pocket
You must have, the stuff they call money
Don't you can't buy it in here

I asked a girl, let's have some fun, this is what she said,
"If you ain't got no money, you can't get in my bed"
'Cause you must have, stuff they call money
You must have, down in your pocket
You must have, the stuff they call money
Don't you can't buy it in here

I went in a place last night, a man pulled up a gun,
He said "Sit quiet everybody, don't nobody run"
'Cause you must have, stuff they call money
You must have, down in your pocket
You must have, the stuff they call money
Don't you can't stay in here

I went in a place last night, I went there with my friend,
This is what the people said, "Don't never come back again"
'Cause you must have, stuff they call money
You must have, down in your pocket
You must have, the stuff they call money
Don't you can't stay in here
