​Everything is Free

This song is by Gillian Welch and appears on the album Time (The Revelator) (2001).

Everything is free now
That's what they say
Everything I ever done
Gonna give it away
Someone hit the big score
They figured it out
That we're gonna do it anyway
Even if it doesn't pay

I can get a tip jar
Gas up the car
And try to make a little change
Down at the bar

Or I can get a straight job
I've done it before
I never minded working hard
It's who I'm working for

Everything is free now
That's what they say
Everything I ever done
Gonna give it away
Someone hit the big score
They figured it out
That we're gonna do it anyway
Even if it doesn't pay

Every day I wake up
Hummin' a song
But I don't need to run around
I just stay home

And sing a little love song
My love, to myself
If there's something that you want to hear
You can sing it yourself

'Cause everything is free now
That what I say
No one's got to listen to
The words in my head
Someone hit the big score
And I figured it out
That we're gonna do it anyway
Even if it doesn't pay
