“This song is very unique for me. I’ve been guilty of letting dreams be my master. I think the idea of me singing this song is me finally letting that go in my life and trying to live in the moment as much as I possibly can,” Chesney said of the track via a video clip posted on Facebook.

The song follows singles “Noise” and “Setting the World on Fire,” off of Cosmic Hallelujah, which will be released on October 28th. Fans can currently pre-order the album via iTunes and receive four tracks immediately, including “Rich and Miserable.”    Check out the lyrics to this tune below.

Rich and Miserable Lyrics

Green grass, help the cows graze, hedgefund 401
Keg and milk and honey in the land of the free
New York Times, Farmer’s Almanac
Too busy to call our mamas
Back porch ain’t what it used to be
We don’t know what we want
But we want it and we want it all right now

We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable

Go to school to get a job
Don’t make enough to pay it off
And on and on it goes
Right wing blue jean, gotta get the new thing
Whatever it takes to make the world look at you, think…

We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable

And maybe we’ll get it
(And maybe we’ll get it)
Maybe we won’t
(Maybe we won’t)
But even when we get it
(But even when we get it)
Really we don’t

We’re too young until we’re too old
We’re all lost on the yellow brick road
We climb the ladder but the ladder just grows
We’re born, we work, we die, it’s spiritual
Enough is never enough
American dream never wakes up
Too much is never too much
We won’t be happy ’til we’re rich and miserable

Come on, get rich and miserable
Come on, get rich and miserable

This song is featured on Kenny’s Cosmic Hallelujah album.
