***********************************************************************


D   C   G   D
INTRO


    D                            Cadd9
Way down in Louisiana, where the moss and cyprus grew,
      G
You'd find old Jack in a shotgun shack
       G7                  D
In the back of the black bayou.
                                  Cadd9
Some folks called him crazy, but I knew better than that,
          G
He kept a hundred dollar bill tucked away in the brim
       G7               D
Of his dirty old cowboy hat.


D                         Cadd9
Jack told me a story when I was ten years old,
              G 
He said there once was a fool tried to swim this swamp
         G7                      D
With his back weighted down with gold.

He said "You should have seen that alligator smile,
         Cadd9                  G
He had a meal fit for a king, but he ended up on my table son,
G7               D
Money ain't everything."


                G
He said there's only one way into this world,
    D
And one way out, its true.
G                              A
You either eat the alligator or he's gonna eat you.
        G
There's people living in a high rise,
        D                  G7
That'll never hear a robin sing.
     D
What good is first place when you're in a rat race?
C                D      C  G  D
Money ain't everything.


D                                Cadd9
Little Maggie May was dyin', her heart was about to go,
         G                  
When her daddy found a sack on the porch out back
     G7                        D
With half a million dollars in gold.
                                       Cadd9
They still talk about the stranger who saved her life that spring,
G
No name on the note, but someone wrote:
G7               D
Money ain't everything.


                G
He said there's only one way into this world,
    D
And one way out, its true.
G                              A
You either eat the alligator or he's gonna eat you.
        G
There's people living in a high rise,
        D                  G7
That'll never hear a robin sing.
     D
What good is first place when you're in a rat race?
C                D
Money ain't everything.

No name on the note, but I know who wrote:
C                D      Cadd9  G   D
Money ain't everything.
