She sold her love to a modern man
'Cause solid currency's the hardest to lend
All of that money helps you cover your eyes
Don't let the lady finger blow in your hand

Did it all
For that dollar
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

Just like a whiskey bottle drained on the floor
She got no future, just a love to endure
This good samaritan is shaking her hide
'Too late to leave him now the song's in her car

Did it all
For that dollar
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

You call it chivalry
Never pull a punch for free
You ever wonder why you had to move on
This phony honor code
That puts you on your throne
A double standard
You invoke when you want

For that dollar
She's a star tonight
Without warning
She gave up
The ghost inside

Was it all for show?
Don't turn into one of them
Turning another page
Trust me darlin'
I'm carving 'em up through the dust in your town
Crawling over rubble just to sound me out
Though I tend to wonder why...
