We Got Paid By Cash Recorded by the Statler Brothers Written by Harold Reid and Don Reid
C F C It started March of sixty-four many years ago G7 We were hired by Johnny Cash to open up his show C F C Four boys a worn-out Cadillac with a road-map on the dash G7 C For the next eight and one-half years we got paid by Cash
F C He took us down to Nashville to Columbia Studios G7 Not knowing where we came from they told us where to go C F C But Johnny said I like them don't you give them no trash G7 C You see we were Johnny's little boys and we got paid by Cash
F G7 C Am We were there when June became Johnny's loving bride F C D7 G7 And we sang to him that morning our buddy Luther died F G7 C Am And we were there when the son was born that filled them both with pride F C G7 C And we were there when John remembered God was on his side
F C We watched on the concert stage we watched him write his songs G7 And saw the things we had to do and the things that could go wrong C F C And if we had to start again we'd do it in a flash G7 C Cause we learned more than we earned when we got paid by Cash
F C And then the time when our career demanded that we go G7 And through some tears we all shook hands that last and final show C F C All those years we never had a contract or a plan G7 C Whatever we may be today we owe it all to Cash
F C Now John will tell you there were years when times were good and bad G7 But we can tell you they were some of the best we ever had C F C Carl Perkins and The Carter's and The Tennessee Three G7 C We were one big happy family and would have done it all for free
