I thought I heard the captain say
Pay me my money down
Tomorrow is our sailing day
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me
Pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

As soon as the boat was clear of the bar
Pay me my money down
He knocked me down with a spar
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me
Pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Well, If I'd been a rich man's son
Pay me my money down
I'd sit on the river and watch it run
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me
Pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

I wish I was Mr. Gates
Pay me my money down
They'd haul my money in a crate
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me
Pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Well, forty nights, and nights at sea
Pay me my money down
That captain worked every last dollar outta me.
Pay me my money down

Pay me, pay me
Pay me my money down
Pay me or go to jail
Pay me my money down

Quite likeable, if I could just remember the name.

Bruce ~ a force of nature.
I'd like it better if it weren't BS.
Nice follow on to Johnny Marr - Easy Money, but Bruce's 24 uses of money has a ways to go to catch up to Johnny's 74.
Thought something from Andy Fairweather Low had made it to RP
Shucks, only the boss 
Buckwheat Bruce? 
 
I have never heard of this ever. I think I want it real bad.
It just reminds me that I had to forget about last BS local concert this year because of the price of the ticket. {#No}
very good roots album!
1st time I've heard this on RP...it's a nice change of pace for Bruce.
Outstanding !    The Dublin Sessions will be in the history books some day.

 
I actually like Bruce's voice better in this context.
My son's band Anonymous love playing this song. Two chords and the truth!

I'm anxious to hear it too as the uploader!
