Kingston Trio — Put Your Money Away lyrics

John Stewart

I could go a-runnin', jumpin', reachin' for the sky (reachin' for the sky)
That's all that I thought that it would take to buy your mind (take to buy your mind)
Then one day, I looked the other way.

Chorus:
And, hey, did you ever see my town at sundown, all the hills around.
Hey, put your money away. Hey, hey, put your money away. Hey, hey, put your money away.

When somebody comes a-callin', knockin' on my door (knockin' on my door)
Tryin' hard to sell me something that I have no use for (I have no use for)
I push the fool inside. I take a look outside.

[Chorus:]

I could go a-runnin', jumpin', reachin' for the sky (reachin' for the sky)
That's all that I thought that it would take to buy your mind (take to buy your mind)
Then one day, I looked the other way.

[Chorus:]
