"Easy Money" as written by and Richrath Gary Dean....
South of the border and busted
Caught by a woman I trusted
Now, don't you call me a fool
It could have happened to you
It's just my luck
It had to happen to me

Sweet Carmelita betrayed me
She said, "Take me home, serenade me"
I figured a song could do me no wrong
I didn't know how wrong I could be

Easy money for just one run to Peru
It'll be so easy, we'll have no trouble gettin' through
Well I almost made it, except for that one border guard
He opened up my guitar, hello prison yard
Goodbye easy money, easy money

The Chiquita must have told 'em my story
'Cause when my eyes finally focused next morning
Carmelita had spoken 'bout guitars and some coke
And she laughed as they slapped me in chains

I was thrown in cell with a killer
A convict who coughed through the night
While I laid awake with the chills and shakes
Hoping for a file in a cake

Easy money for just one run to Peru
It'll be so easy, we'll have no trouble gettin' through
Well I almost made it, except for that one border guard
He opened up my guitar, hello prison yard
Just to make me mad he smashed my guitar
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Easy money
