QUEEN OF THE SILVER DOLLAR (Written by Shel Silverstein) Emmylou Harris She arrives in all her splendor Each night at nine o'clock Her chariot is the crosstown bus That stops right down the block Now the old piano minstrel plays her tune as she walks in And the Queen of the Silver Dollar's home again She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar She rules this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is her throne Now the jesters flock around her tryin’ to win her favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home Now her royal dress is satin It's shabby and it's torn The royal jewels are rhinestones The shoes are scuffed and worn Of the many roads she's been down, And the places that she's seen Well they all look at her and say God save the queen Now the Queen of the Silver Dollar Is not as haughty as she seems She was once an ordinary girl with ordinary dreams But there's a man who found her And he brought her to this world He's the one who made a queen of a simple country girl Yes I'm the Queen of the Silver Dollar I rule this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is my throne Now the jesters flock around me tryin' to win my favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home Yes I'm the Queen of t he Silver Dollar I rule this smokey kingdom Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is my throne Now the jesters flock around me tryin' to win my favors To see which one will take the Queen of the Silver Dollar home
