Jumped in the truck and headed for Kansas
Morning found me in Port Aranas
Sipping on rum
In that warm Texas sun
I've never been good at keeping direction
And i believe schedules are one of life's worst inflections
And i gotta be free
'Cause I'd rather nothing
Than a whole lot of something I don't need

I'd rather have nothing
Than a whole lot of something
That don't fit the life that i lead
material things and all that wealth brings
just must be for some other breed
'cause life ain't about the worries and doubts
That comes with the lust and the greed
and i'd rather have nothing
that a whole lot of something we don't need

I spent that evening in a tavern in town
with a bunch of my new friends my money brought 'round
and i told them 'bout you
and all the hell we'd been through
everyone there had a similar story
years full of tears from all the heartache and worry
and we all agreed
that we'd rather have nothing
than a whole lot of something we don't need

i'd rather have nothing
than a whole of something
that don't fit the life that i lead
commintments and strings and all that love brings
just must be for some other breed
'cause life ain't about the worries and doubts
that comes wtih the lust and the greed
and i'd rather have nothing
than a whole lot of something i don't need

0h, i'd thater have nothing
than a whole lot of someting i don't need
