“Everything Is Free”

Videos by American Songwriter


“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
They were gonna do it anyway,
Even if doesn’t pay.

I can get a tip jar,
Gas up the car
Try to make a little change,
Down at the bar.
Or I can get a straight job,
I’ve done it before
Never minded working hard,
It’s who I’m working for.

Every day I wake up
Humming a song,
But I don’t need to run around
I just stay home.
Sing a little love song,
My love and myself
If there’s something that you want to hear
You can sing it yourself.

– Written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Appears on the album Time (The Revelator).
