Im thinking Jonny Lang style leads and blues licks with standards blues formations and more Johnny Winter on the vocal style. Not sure whether I want the optional section or not. Guess it depends on whos playing it...In my head i was hearing rocking blues band...
As usual comments, corrections and suggestions are all greatly appreciated.

Easy Money

Chorus
Easy money and a restless mind
Take you a long, long way from home
Easy money, and a restless mind
Take you a long, long way from my home
When the money come too easy, make you wanna roam.

Verse 1
Poppa done told me,
Gotta be true to you
Work hard save your pennies
And no matter what you do
Stay away from the devil
And whatever he offers you,
Dont go for easy money
Its just too good to be true

Chorus
Easy money and a restless mind
Take you a long long way from home
Easy money, and a restless mind
Take you a long long way from my home
When the money come too easy, make you wanna roam

Blues instrumental one verse
Lead solo over rhythm chords plus turn around

Verse 2
Easy money get ahold to you
Think you're gonna be glad
You be empty on the inside
Just bitter, worthless and sad
Easy money make a good girl
Keep her eyes looking for gold
Shell break your heart, spin your mind
And crush your loving soul.

Chorus
Easy money and a restless mind
Take you a long, long way from home
Easy money, and a restless mind
Take you a long, long way from my home
When the money come too easy, make you wanna roam.

Bridge and breakdown

Bad luck and sadness..... And a troubled heart
Will always keep you hurting..... And tear your soul apart
Easy money you know it.....make you wanna roam
There's no damn good in anything.....That take you from your happy home.

--------------- optional section -----------------
Easy Money (easy money)
Easy Money (easy money)
Gonna make your momma cry
Easy Money (easy money)
Easy Money (easy money)
Gonna make you say goodbye
--------------------------------------------------------

Verse 3
Peaceful heart is a virtue
Patience a good trait
Evil likes to hurry
Goodness wants to wait
Easy money is the fast train
To a place you dont wanna know
Itll lead you down a pitch black rail
And it wont ever let you go, oh oh oh ohhhhhh

Chorus
Easy money and a restless mind
Take you a long, long way from home
Easy money, and a restless mind
Take you a long long way from my home
When the money come too easy, make you wanna roam.
