GREENBACK DOLLAR (Written by Hoyt Axton / Ken Ramsey) The Kingston Trio Some people say I'm a no-'count Others say I'm no good But I'm just a natural-born travelin' man Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah Doin' what I think I should Refrain: And I don't give a damn about a greenback-a dollar Spend it fast as I can For a wailin' song and a good guitar The only things that I understand, poor boy The only things that I understand When I was a little baby My mama said "Hey son," "Travel where you will and grow to be a man and sing what must be sung, poor boy" Sing what must be sung Refrain Now that I'm a grown man I've traveled here and there I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song The only ones who ever care, poor boy The only ones who ever care Refrain Some people say I'm a no-'count Others say I'm no good But I'm just a natural-born travelin' man Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah Doin' what I think I should Refrain: And I don't give a damn about a greenback-a dollar Spend it fast as I can For a wailin' song and a good guitar The only things that I understand, poor boy The only things that I understand The only things that I understand, poor boy The only things that I understand
