"If You've Got the Money I've Got the Time" is a 1950 song by Lefty Frizzell, who co-wrote the song with Jim Beck, and it was his debut single. The single stayed at No. 1 for three weeks on the Most Played C&W Jukebox Records and peaked at number two on the C&W Best Seller list. The Frizzell recording spent 22 weeks on the country chart.[1]

In 1976, Willie Nelson took his version to No. 1 on the country chart, where it became his second solo release to reach No. 1.

In 2012, it appeared on The Little Willies album For the Good Times.
