Dolly Parton Nickels and Dimes Lyrics

And I play my guitar and sing as the people went by
The sidewalks are crowded but I just sing louder cause I didn't mind
Spending my time spinning my rhymes and singing for nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes a song at a time for nickels and dimes
I'd brighten their day as they go on their way and they'd brighten mine
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
I knew that someday in my own special way I'd repay all their nickels and dimes

I recall the sidewalk each night as I stand on the stage
As I play my guitar and sing for the people who paid
Cause I finally made it to what they all call the big time
But I still remember I still owe some nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes a song at a time for nickels and dimes
A sidewalk rehearsal for dreams that I held in my mind
So if you remember a child on the corner of time
You'll know that I wrote this to repay your nickels and dimes

Nickels and dimes a song at a time for nickels and dimes...
Nickels and dimes a song at a time for nickels and dimes...
