            Dollar Bill Blues
Townes Van Zandt


Capo 2nd Fret 


Am                 Dm 
If I had a dollar bill 
                        Am 
Yes I believe I surely will 
                        Em 
Go to town and drink my fill 
               Am 
Early in the morning 


Little darlin' she's a red haired thing 
Man she makes my legs to sing 
Gonna buy her a diamond ring 
Early in the mornin' 


Mother was a golden girl 
Slit her throat just to get her pearls 
Cast myself into a world Before a bunch of swine It's a long way down the Harlan road Busted back and a heavy load Won't get through to save my soul Early in the mornin' I always been a gambling man Roll them bones with either hand Seven is the promised land Early in the mornin' Whiskey be my dyin' bed Tell me where to lay my head Not with me is all she said Early in the mornin' If I had a dollar bill Yes I believe I surely will Go to town and drink my fill Early in the mornin'
