Wash My Horse in Champagne

Well I’m not rich now and I’m living in a world of pain
Well I’m not rich now and I’m living in a world of pain
Like a Manaus rubber baron gonna wash my horse in champagne
I’m gonna wash my horse in champagne!

Schools that you gave me never taught me a doggone thing
Schools that you gave me never taught me a doggone thing
Guess I’ll carve my own throne and crown my own self king
And I’ll wash my horse in champagne!

My side of town nobody hands you fortune or fame
My side of town nobody hands you fortune or fame
Before I leave this world they’re gonna build tall buildings in my name
And I’ll wash my horse in champagne!

Walk all over me and I won’t make a single sound
Walk all over me and I won’t make a single sound
I’m gonna prove to them baby that you can’t keep a good man down
I’m gonna wash my horse in champagne!

I’m gonna wash my horse in champagne!
Wash my horse in champagne!
Build tall buildings in my name!
I’m gonna wash I’m gonna wash
I’m gonna wash my horse in champagne!
