I Threw The Rest Away
Recorded by Tracy Lawrence
Written by Paul Nelson and Gene Nelson

C
Met him in a dive down in New Orleans

I recognized his handsome face

It was none of my business but I had to know

What he was doing in this kind of place
F
Cause he use to have money use to have honeys

He used to be society's prince
C
But he still wore a grin when I sat beside him
G7 C
And ask where all that money went

G7
He said some was spent on gamblin'
C
A lot was spent women a little on some good Cabernet
G7
Three or four divorces at least as many horses
C
That never left the startin' gates
E7
Diamond rings and furs swamp land in New Jersey
Am G7 F
That week I spent a year in LA
D7 G7 C
You know I hate to admit I threw the rest away


He said money don't mean nothing

Is this game of life it's just a way of keeping score

Show me a man who's got everything

I'll show you one who wants even more
F
Well so smoke 'em if you got 'em

Cause when you hit bottom you gotta have a reason to smile
C
Hey you can have a little piece of the rock
G7 C
I'll take a little piece of mind

repeat #2

E7
Diamond rings and furs swamp land in New Jersey
Am G7 F
That week I spent a year in LA
D7 G7 C
You know I hate to admit I threw the rest away
G7 C
I threw the rest away
