Written with Lance Cowan, Nashville TN.
Lance may recall this differently, but I'm pretty sure that I wanted to write a song about living simply, anti-greed, and so on. And I think it was Lance who came up with the idea for this bluesy feel and terrific melody, which I've always loved singing.
Recorded at County Q in Nashville, featuring some beautiful piano work by Bob Patin. (Where are you, Bob?)


(Greg Tamblyn, Lance Cowan)

People say I’m a lazy fool
They’ve told you I just don’t try
Tell me where’s the crime if all I do is
Just enough to get me by

Why should I worry about money
Too many good things money can’t buy
So I don’t ever need too much
No just enough to get me by

People chase some strange dreams
Work hard all their lives
Missing out on the sweet things
‘Cause they never have the time

So baby, if you want me
Ain’t gonna change, I can’t lie
But all I’ll ask from you is love
Just enough to get me by
