Bill Anderson - Nickels Quarters And Dimes Lyrics

NICKELS QUARTERS AND DIMES
(Bill Anderson - Jimmy Gateley)
'66 Moss Rose Publications RECORDED BY JIMMY GATELEY

I just took my last ten dollars from my pocket
I said I'd like some change if you don't mind
The bartender asked me how I'd like it
I said nickels quarters and dimes
I spread my silver out across the table
I said money get her off my mind
I thumbed the cash in all of my old mem'ries
With these nickels quarters and dimes
Nickels tip the waitress dimes play the jukebox
And quarters buy me wine wine wine
Now there's seven empty bottles on the table
Money's runnin' short and so is time
Turn the jukebox up and I'll drink faster
Hurry nickels quarters and dimes
I just noticed the waitress has the same first name as you do
And on the jukebox why I'd recognize you're singin' anytime
But I didn't know till now they put your picture
On nickels quarters and dimes
Nickels tip the waitress dimes play the jukebox
And quarters buy me wine wine wine
And quarters buy me wine wine wine

SONG WRITTEN BY TED BOSMAN & EDDIE LEGATE IN 1962 IN FLINT, MI

NICKELS, QUARTERS, AND DIMES

I walked into a barroom and laid my money down
I said kind sir can you give me some change
When he asked me, When he asked me how I'd like it
I said nickles, quarters, and dimes
CHORUS
For I said nickles tip the waitress
Dimes play the jukebox
And quarters buy me wine,wine,wine

I made it to the phone 100 times or more
And the operator asked me, Number please
But I keep walking back to the table
To build my courage up on nickles, quarters,and dimes
CHORUS
I got seven empty bottles on the table
Well my moneys running short and so is time
Since when did they start putting your picture on nickles, quarters, and dimes
CHORUS
Since when did they start putting your picture on nickles, quarters, and dimes
