17 Cents is a whale of a lot
17 Cents is what I got
Grocery bills,heat and the rent
All i have left is 17 cents
19,18, 17 cents, dirty old dime and a penny's bent
Ain't seen m'noth'in of my darlin since
Left me here with 17 cents.
Well down the road and around the bend
Lookin for gold the the rainbow end
over the field and under the fence.
pockets are lined with 17 cents
19, 18, 17 cents
Dirty old dime and the penny's bent
Ain't seen nothing of m'darlin' since
She left me here with 17 cents.
I got a letter from the IRS
"You owe back taxes--17 cents"
Wish I had all the money they spent
Spent on bringing in 17 cents.19, 18, 17 cents
Dirty old dime and the penny's bent
Ain't seen nothing of m'darlin' since
She left me here with 17 cents.
Went to Nashville--wrote me a song
Put it on a record from Fiddlin' John
Bill Monroe and Joseph Spence
Royalty check was 17 cents
19, 18, 17 cents
Dirty old dime and the penny's bent
Ain't seen nothing of m'darlin' since
She left me here with 17 cents.
Down the road, skid row gents
Always begged for 17 cents
Never did find out where they went
To buy anything for 17 cents
17 cents for a cup of joe, ticket home or a burger roll
Never did find out where Ed spent
To buy such things for 17 cents
19, 18, 17 cents
Dirty old dime and the penny's bent
Ain't seen nothing of m'darlin' since
She left me here with 17 cents.
