.................

[Verse 1]
         D
If I was in it for the money
I'd have a mansion on a hill by now
         G
If I was in it for milk and honey
I'd have honeybees and a cow
         D
If I was in it for the fame
      Bm
You'd already know my name
     D              A                D
I've only ever been in it for the love

[Verse 2]
                              A
I was born to make a loud noise
A six-string Troubadour
       G
Like a kid who thinks he's a cowboy
With a cap, gun, and carousel horse
       D
I keep runnin' down my dream
   Bm
It runs in my bloodstream
     D              A                D
I've only ever been in it for the love (Yeah)

[Chorus]
G                                     D
Love can't fill your tank or pay your rent
        G                               A
Oh, but love's the only reason it makes sense
         D
If you can't put your heart into it
        Bm
For the love of God, don't do it
             D                 A                D         Bm    D    A    D
If you're in it, you bett?r be in it for the love (Yeah)....................

[Verse 3]
Now, daddy was a rock 'n' roll drummer
Who suffered in a suit and tie
           G
Yeah, that bank job did a number
It drained his spirit dry
          D
He said, "Listen, son, learn from me
        Bm
Oh, the money ain't everything"
        D              A                D
So I've only ever been in it for the love (That's right)

[Chorus]
G                                     D
Love can't fill your tank or pay your rent
        G                               A
Oh, but love's the only reason it makes sense
         D
If you can't put your heart into it
        Bm
For the love of God, don't do it
             D                 A                D
If you're in it, you better be in it for the love (Here we go)

[Instrumental]
G    D    G    A    D    G
...........................

[Outro]
          D               
Well, I'm far from makin' a fortune
                              G
But I do pretty good for myself
And I know what's most important
I got my family, and I got my health
  D                         Bm
I keep my main objective on keepin' a good perspective
    D                A                D
I'm in it, yeah, I'm in it for the love (That's right)
If I was in it for the fame
      Bm
You'd already know my name
         D              A                G
But I've only ever been in it for the love
   Em    D
Mm mm......
