I Threw The Rest Away (Acoustic Live Version) - Tracy Lawrence

I met him in a dive down in New Orleans

I recognized his handsome face

It was none of my business,

but I had to know

What he was doing in this kind of place

'Cause he used to have money,

he used to have honeys

He used to be society's prince

But he still wore a grin when I sat beside him

And asked, "Where all that money went?"

He said, "Some was spent on gambling,

a lot was spent on women

A little on some good Cabernet

Three or four divorces,

at least that many horses

That never left the starting gate"

"Diamond rings and furs,

swamp land in New Jersey

That week I spent a year in L.A.

 

You know I hate to admit it

But I threw the rest away"

 

He said,

"Money don't mean nothing in this game of life

It's just a way of keeping score

Show me a man whose got everything

I'll show you one who wants even more"

"Well so smoke em' when you got em'

When you hit bottom,

you gotta have a reason to smile

You can have a little piece of the rock

I'll take a little piece of mind"

He said, "Some was spent on gambling,

a lot was spent on women

A little on some good Cabernet

Three or four divorces, at least that many horses

That never left the starting gate"

"Diamond rings and furs,

swampland in New Jersey

That week I spent a year in L.A.

 

You know I hate to admit it

But I threw the rest away"

 

"Diamond rings and furs,

swampland in New Jersey

That week I spent a year in L.A.

You know I hate to admit it

I threw the rest away, I threw the rest away"
