When I Had Money

I listened to my baby : when she was telling me her dreams
Lord everything now : baby would be peaches and cream

I had money on the horses : money on one two three
Now my water got muddy : and my horse run into a stream

Now when I had money : I had friends and a real good home
Lord I done lost my money : babe my friends and home is gone

Lord my mother tried : Lord to make me do right
Lord I would stay drunk all day : baby and I wouldn't come home at night

Lord if I had a‑listened to my mother : Lord what she say
Lord I would not have been here no : baby laying in this old hospital bed
