I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright
I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright

I've been lost in Boston, Austin, Texas is always sweet
I stumbled around that Texas town but I never left Sixth Street
(Never left Sixth Street)
You know it's always hard to keep my feet from tryin' to run away
And it seems I spent a lifetime tryin' to make everything okay

I wanna go down to see her, she's my little queen
I wanna go down to tell her, she means the world to me
I wish I was down to watch her play that tambourine
She always brought a smile to me, I'd do anything

I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright

I wish sometimes that I could say she never told me so
(Never told me so)
And I'd walk a million miles on down the same old broken road
Now you can always reap just what you sow I know that's true
(True)
And I pray some day that I wake and my poor feet won't fit these shoes

I wanna go down to see her, she's my little queen
I wanna go down to tell her, she means the world to me
I wish I was down to watch her play that tambourine
She always brought a smile to me, I'd do anything

I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright

If I listened closely I can hear it oh so clear
(Clear)
Like a south bound train, like fallin' rain, like a whisper in my ear
(Whisper in my ear)
Everything I'd like to hear you know I don't hear much no more
But I know someday that you'll come my way
And you'll walk right through that door

I wanna go down to see her, she's my little queen
I wanna go down to tell her, she means the world to me
I wish I was down to watch her play that tambourine
She always brought a smile to me, I'd do anything

I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright
(Everything's gonna be alright)

I wish I had a dollar for all the times somebody told me
Everything's gonna be alright
(Everything's gonna be alright)
