It Smells Like Money

She was 25 in 63.....with 5 young kids includin’ me

We would watch til’ 9 or 10...when Mom would drive the Chevy in

I used to hear our friends next door say “Lorrie

Quit that job or you’ll be sorry....

You spend too much time down there....breathin’ in that toxic air”

Mom would laugh and close one eye....and this was her reply......


It jus’ smells like clothes and school supplies

Maybe it’s not the best it can be

But it smells like money to me


Laney went to Idaho, Julie lives in Spain

Jimmy has a sailboat, and Kimmie grows our grain

And before she died our dear Mom, Lorrie

Had our baby brother Cory...but Cory did not get to stay

And never heard our mother say




I drove out to see the place where Mother used to work

The land is bare, where Mom had been

I swear I heard her whisperin’


It jus’ smells like you go climb a tree

Maybe it’s not the best it can be..

But it smells like money to me


It jus’ smells like pizza and TV

Things we need don’t come for free

And it smells like money to me
