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

Repeat #3

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
