The Price You Pay






Rubies, sapphire, diamonds & gold


All the money your purse can hold


Had nice place flood took away.


Nothing’s left to do but pray.


Nothing shines more than a day


Ain’t nothing worth the price you pay.






Baby cried when the black water came.


Cried and cried as we washed away.


It’s hard to live, hard to breathe


After losing everything you need.


Nothing shines more than a day


Ain’t nothing worth the price you pay.






Everything’s changed now I’m back


Where I lived, everything’s black.


New city’s for them, them that got.


Just mud for us, us that’s not.


Nothing shines more than a day


Ain’t nothing worth the price you pay.










Nothing left where I’ve been.


Nowhere to go to start over again.


No one said I was born to be good,


But I had a good life in my house of wood.


Nothing shines more than a day


Ain’t nothing worth the price you pay.






Rubies, sapphire, diamonds & gold


All the money your purse can hold


My next house gonna be steel and stone,


Up on the hill, like the rich people own


Nothing shines more than a day


Ain’t nothing worth the price you pay.
