One More Dollar chords - Gillian Welch

Gillian Welch Lyrics


            ONE MORE DOLLAR (Gillian Welch / David Rawlings)from "REVIVAL" 

G              D          G
A long time ago I left my home
      C          G
For a job in the fruit trees
G                                D      G
But I missed those hills with the windy pines
          C              G
For their song seemed to suit me

G                 D      G
So I sent my wages to my home
    C                 G
And said we'd soon be together
G                     D             G
For the next good crop would pay my way
      C               G
And I would come home forever

CHORUS:
Em  D/F# C       D           G
One more dime to show for my day
Em  D/F# C          D         G
One more dollar and I'm on my way
Em D/F# C D G When I reach those hills, boys, I'll never roam Em D/F# C D G One more dollar and I'm going home VERSE 3: G D G No work said the boss at the bunk house door, C G There's a freeze on the branches, G D G So when the dice came out at the bar downtown, C G I rolled and I took my chances (CHORUS) G D G A long time ago I left my home C G Just a boy passing twenty G D G Could you spare a coin and a Christian prayer C G For my luck has turned against me (CHORUS) One more dollar, boys I'm going home [Thanks to Esion Knalb for corrections]
