The best country songs about money usually have to do with being broke, but at least we can all relate to them in one way or another. Songs like Marty Stuart’s “Too Much Month at the End of the Money” are great country songs about not being able to pay the bills, while Kip Moore’s “Buy Me A Boat” express the desire to have more money to buy material things.
Do you have a favorite country song about being poor or rich? If you’ve ever been laid off, Ronnie Dunn’s “Cost of Livin'” is definitely a song you’ll be able to relate to. It’s a great country song about being fired from your job because of company-wide layoffs, something that too many Americans can unfortunately relate to. Let us know in the comments if you have a favorite country song about money, whether it has “dollar” in the title or it’s just about cash in general.
1. Willie Nelson- If You’ve Got the Money I’ve Got the Time
Originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell in 1950, Willie Nelson made “If You’ve Got the Money I’ve Got the Time” a #1 hit again when he covered the song in 1976. In modern times you might call the narrator of the song a gold digger, as the lyrics suggest- “We’ll go honky tonkin’ make every spot in town / We’ll go to the every spot and leave all gold around / If you run short of money I’ll run short of time / If you’ve got no more money honey I’ve got no more time.”
