​Millionaire

This song is by Slaid Cleaves and appears on the album Unsung (2006).

Well, I started out with one lone dollar
Gambled with a man and I won me another
I bought me a gun and I robbed my brother
I'm bad, but I don't care boys, I'm gonna be a
Millionaire

Well, I hopped on a ship and we sailed on the waves
Dealt in rum and we dealt in slaves
Left my captain in a salty grave
He's gone, but I don't care, I'm gonna be a millionaire

How many of you wanna see me dead
How many of you wanna have my head
How many of you just live your lives
Wishing you were me boys, wishing you were me

Well, I married rich, a pretty little wife
Brought her misery every day of her life
She slit her wrist with a silver knife
You can't blame that on me boys, her money belongs to
Me
Well, I found myself in a good position
To buy myself some cheap politicians
Bought myself a big election
That's just how it went boys, now I own the president

How many of you wanna see me dead
How many of you wanna have my head
How many of you just live your lives
Wishing you were me boys, wishing you were me

When you say your prayers down on your knees
Ask the Lord, forgive you, please
If it crosses your mind say one for me
I know where I'm bound boys, I know where I'm bound

'Cause I started out with one lone dollar
Gambled with a man and I won me another
I bought me a gun and I robbed my brother
I'm bad, but I don't care boys, I'm gonna be a
Millionaire
