Country Singer, Kristian Bush Goes Busking & You Won’t Believe What Happens. A Must See

Sugarland band member, Kristian Bush was asked to busk on the streets of Chicago for his upcoming video Trail Hitch lyric video. The production crew had no idea that Bush didn’t feel comfortable taking people’s money and had other plans that included $300 in ones and some chalk that he got from Rite Aid on his way to the shoot.

Yes, that’s right, he gave away the $300 in ones and told on lookers that he wanted to buy them a drink. At first, people wouldn’t take the money so Bush had to encourage them and let them know it was ok. In his interview with Rolling Stone, Bush shared, “People were looking at me funny; they got suspicious. I mean, here I am giving strangers money on the street. People would say no, and then I’d say, ‘Go give it to someone who needs it.’ Then they caught on. It turns out, people are much more comfortable giving than they are taking.

What an amazing take-away and the lyrics below aren’t too bad either. If you’d rather see Kristian battle zombies in the Zombie Apocalypse instead of him busking, check out his other official video for Trailer Hitch.

Trailer Hitch Lyrics
by Kristian Bush

I wanna buy you a drink
Maybe one for this whole town
I may not have that much
But I don’t mind spreading it around.
Everybody chasing something
I don’t know why they’re running
I take my time to the finish line
‘Cause we all end up with nothing.

CHORUS
I don’t know why, know why
Everybody wanna die rich
Diamonds, Champagne,
Work your way down that list.
We try, everybody tries
Tries to fit into that ditch
You can’t take it with you when you go
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch.

Started my day
Giving away
All of my baseball cards
It felt so good by the afternoon
I gave some guy my car
It ain’t about what you’re driving
Or about the gold you’re piling
The less I have to worry about
The more time I got for smiling

CHORUS
I don’t know why, know why
Everybody wanna die rich
Champagne, New plane
Work your way down that list.
We try, everybody tries
Tries to fit into that ditch
You can’t take it with you when you go
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch.

Hey, ey.

You can stack it up
Pack it up
Tie it with a big, red bow
Get a great, big truck
Back it all up
But you can’t take it with you when you go
Can’t take it when you go.

CHORUS
I don’t know why, know why
Everybody wanna die rich
Diamonds, Champagne, Newest of the new planes
Work your way down that list.
We try, everybody tries
Tries to fit into that ditch
You can’t take it with you when you go
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch
Never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch.

Hey, ey.
Hey, ey.
Give it away,
Hey, ey.
Give it away.
