Greenback Dollar:The Kingston Trio
# 21 in 1959.
Some people say I'm a no'count,
Others say I'm no good,
But I'm just a natural born travelin' man,
Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah,
Doin' what I think I should.
Em G C G C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar,
G C G
Spend it just as fast as I can.
G C G C
For whiskey, song, and a good guitar,
C D Em
are the only things that I under..stand,
The only things that I under..stand.
When I was a little baby,
My mama said, Hey son,
Travel where you will and grow to be a man,
and sing what must be sung,
Sing what must be sung.
Now that I'm a grown man,
I've traveled here and there,
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song,
are the only ones who ever care,
The only ones who ever care.
A fabulous fifties hit from Kraziekhat.
