Kris Kristofferson - One For The Money Lyrics




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

  5. Notorious Schwartz

    His 70s albums were the best

    the winner

    I agree that he sure continued to write and record great songs in the 70s. He shouldn't just be rememebered for the first few big batches of songs he wrote. He continued to write songs in a way that only a man with his skills could.

  6. Yvonne Wills-Williams

    What a voice he has .
