poor man’s dream lyrics – lynyrd skynyrd

poor man’s dream

there ain’t no poor man
born with a silver spoon
and there ain’t no wise man
who learned it all in school

a politician’s promise
can make you feel like a fool
but when they get the power
they’re the first to break the golden rule

we work that 40 acres like riders on a mule

climb that mountain
reach the sky
hangin’ on for a good laugh
for a piece of that american pie
hey nothin’s easy
nothin’s for free
in the world of dog eat dog
oh people, that’s a poor man’s dream

hey mr. walton
lend me a dime
you know i’ll repay ya
but it’s gonna take me some time

i’m standing at the crossroads
just about to roll the dice
i got a dream in my heart
whatever it takes
i know i gotta pay the price

we work that 40 acres like riders on a mule

climb that mountain
reach the sky
hangin’ on for a good laugh
for a piece of that american pie
hey nothin’s easy
nothin’s for free
in the world of dog eat dog
oh people, that’s a poor man’s dream

we work that 40 acres like riders on a mule

climb that mountain
reach the sky
hangin’ on for a good laugh
for a piece of that american pie
hey nothin’s easy
nothin’s for free
in the world of dog eat dog
oh people, that’s a poor man’s dream

hey nothin’s easy
nothin’s for free
in the world of dog eat dog
oh people, that’s a poor man’s dream

oh… it’s a poor man’s dream
