Jim Croce Greenback Dollar Lyrics

Last updated: 07/31/2007 11:00:00 AM

Some people say I'm a no 'count
Others say I'm no good
But I'm just a nat'ral born travellin' man
Doin' what I think should, oh yeah
Doin' what I think should

Chorus:
When I was a little baby my mama said, hey son
Travel where you will and grow to be a man
But sing what must be sung, poor boy Sing what must be sung

And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
I spend it fast as I can
For a wailing song and a good guitar
The only things that I understand, poor boy
The only things that I understand

Chorus

Now that I'm a grown man
I've travelled here and there
I found that a jug of brandy and a song
Are the only ones who care, poor boy
The only ones who care

Chorus

ANOTHER VERSION | Reviewer: ALICE TILSON | 5/28/2007

I READ THE LYRICS TO YOUR VERSION OF GREENBACK DOLLAR--
THERE MUST BE ANOTHER SONG---
THAT I LEARNED AS A CHILD--
IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE--
I DON'T WANT YOUR GREENBACK DOLLARS--
I DON'T WANT YOUR WATCH AND CHAIN-
ALL I WANT IS YOU MY DARLING--
WON'T YOU TAKE ME BACK AGAIN===

MANY MIGHTS DID I WANDER-
DOWN BESIDE THE DEEP BLUE SEA--
IN YOUR HEART YOU LOVE ANOTHER--
IN MY GRAVE I'D RATHER BE---

AND I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE OTHER VERSES--
BUT I DO KNOW THE TUNE---
THANKS--
DO YOU KNOW THIS VERSION OR WHERE I CAN GET IT??
