Lyrics:

Lord I remember Katrina,
How she took me by surprise
I wagered with her that when the year was through
She'd be gazing in my eyes
She asked me for some hard earned cash
To take the morning train
I smiled so hard when she bought 2 tickets,
Though... neither was in my name

Chorus
No I ain't got no money
But I know you know I'll pay
The banks have done me over
But I'll live to see the day
When I got no debts to drown me
And what I do is right
If I had one wish come true
I'd still chose to be with you tonight

Five years slowly passed serving beer
Working in a strip club shed
Katrina waltzed in to dance for money
But she took my job instead
As if I wasn't done she said, "I need a place to stay"
I tried so hard to think it all through
But she knew just what I'd say

Chorus
No I ain't got no money
But I know you know I'll pay
The banks have done me over
But I'll live to see the day
When I got no debts to drown me
And what I do is right
If I had one wish come true
I'd still chose to be with you tonight

Oh my days you took it all
Oh my days so beautiful
How you took me for a ride
How I need you by my side
Oh my days did you let me down
I still search for you over town
But I've got something left and that's a start
'Cause you never can take my beating heart

When the morning came she'd run again
But I knew what I could do
I could chase her around or have a breakdown
Or Neither of the two
I asked myself that day and I knew
I would soon forgive
My body and soul for craving that girl
My beautiful fugitive

Chorus
No I ain't got no money
But I know you know I'll pay
The banks have done me over
But I'll live to see the day
When I got no debts to drown me
And what I do is right
If I had one wish come true
I'd still chose to be with you tonight

Woohhh, woooh
Oh come on home...
