When Money Talks (Free Single)

The recent earthquake in Groningen, last Wednesday, with a 3.4 Magnitude inspired me to write this song the same day it happened.

The song was recorded last Sunday at the Home Recording Studio “De Zolderstudio” in less than two hours. It was written out of anger, frustration. We live close to the area where the earthquakes are. Some smaller ones have been in our are – damaging houses, schools, infrastructure. We’ve been waiting for the politicians to start making changes. To stop the gas extraction that ruined thousands of houses. They will not listen. Since it seems Money Talks a lot louder ..

WHEN MONEY TALKS
All rights (c)2019 Solid Rock Blues Band

My back was aching
and my hands were shaking
I got up
Outside it’s raining
and the kids complaining
oh shut up

Promised me the moon
you’ll be a rich man soon

When the money comes in
They will be your friend
ain’t it cool
If it’s money that talks
They’ll act like hawks
I’m no fool

Such a fool am I
Never wondered why
they’re coming down
from capital city
The news they got
it ain’t so pretty
pumpin’ (the) gas
out of the ground
say it makes
the world go around

The earth starts movin’
Oh What are they doin’
To my land?
Heard the loudest thwack
And the walls they crack
empty hand..
