I Wish I Had a Nickel Lyrics

by Hank Williams

They tell me little darlin' that tomorrow you'll be wed
You thought that you would hurt me but you hurt yourself instead
I'll always be the same old pal just as in years gone by
I'll just sit back and watch you while you sit alone and cry

Tears fallin' down your pretty cheeks
Tears you cannot hide and tears you cannot keep
They are tears of sorrow and tears of delight
I wish I had a nickel for every tear you shed last night

I just dropped by to tell you that I wish you happiness
I hope that you'll forgive me for intruding like this
I hope, my dear, your happiness will follow through the years
I'll just sit back and watch you, while you shed those bitter tears

Tears fallin' down your pretty cheeks
Tears you cannot hide and tears you cannot keep
They are tears of sorrow and tears of delight
I wish I had a nickel for every tear you shed last night
