This Book refers to If You've Got the Money I've Got the Time performed by Lefty Frizzell
McVries paraphrases this song in Chapter 13 when he says, "I got the time if you got the money, honey."
Set in the near future, the plot revolves around the contestants of a horrific walking contest, held annually by a somewhat despotic and totalitarian version of the United States of America. Note: This book was originally published under Stephen King's alter ego, "Richard Bachman".
