"When I first came across Oliver Anthony and his music, I was blown away to say the least. He had a whole collection of songs that I could listen to for hours. Oliver resides in Farmville, VA with his 3 dogs and a plot of land he plans on turning into a small farm to raise livestock. We have a whole mess of songs set to release of Oliver for your viewing and listening pleasure, he is truly special and notes his biggest influence as Hank Williams Jr. Oliver wants to give hope to the working class and your average hard working young man who may have lost hope in the grind of trying to get by."

Oliver Anthony - Rich Men North Of Richmond

Lyrics

well I've been selling my soul working
all day
over time hours for pay so I
can sit out here and waste my life away
drag back home and down my troubles away
it's a damn shame what the world's
gotten to for people like me people like
you wish I could just wake up and not be
true but it is
all it is living in the New World


these rich men North the Richmond Lord
knows it all to one I have total control
wanna know what you think wanna know
what you do and they don't think you
know but I know that you do cause your
dollar ain't and it's taxable


I wish politicians look out for minors
and not just minors on an island
somewhere Lord we got folks in the
street ain't got nothing to eat and the
whole Beast milking welfare but God if
you're five foot three and you're 300
pounds taxes don't not to pay for your
bags of fudge rounds young men are
putting themselves six feet in the
ground cause all this damn country does
is keep on kicking them down
lord it's a damn shame what the world's
gotten to for people like me people like
you wish I could just wake up and not be
true but it is
all it is


these rich men know the Richmond Lord
knows they all just wanna have total
control wanna know what you think wanna
know what you do and then I don't think
you know but I know that you do cause
your dollar ain't and it's taxed in
no hand calls her X-Men north of
Richmond

thank you

I've been selling my soul
working all day
over time hours
for pain
