I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Well I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Said I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need,
And if I share with you my story, Will you share your dollar with me?

Bad times a coming And I reap what I didn't sow (Hey Hey),
Well Let me tell you something; all that glitters ain't gold (Hey Hey),
It's been a long old trouble, long old troublesome road,
And I'm looking for somebody coming, help me carry this load,

I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Well I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need,

Well I don't know if I'm walking on solid ground,
Because everything around me is falling down,
All I want is someone, to help me-

I had a job, but the boss man let me go (He Said),
I'm sorry but I won't be needing your help no more (I said),
Please, Mr Boss man I need this job more than you know,
But he gave my last paycheque and he sent me on out the door,

Well I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Said I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
And I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need,
And if I share with you my story, Will you share your dollar with me?

Well I don't know if I'm walking on solid ground,
Because everything around me is crumbling down,
All I need is someone, to help me-

What in the world am I gonna' do tomorrow,
Is there someone whose dollar I could borrow?
Who can help me take away my sorrow?
Maybe it's inside the bottle, maybe it's inside the bottle,

I had some good old buddies, names of whisky and wine (Hey Hey),
And for my good old buddies, I spend my last dime (Hey Hey),
Now wine is good to me, it helps me pass the time,
And my good old buddy whisky, keeps me warmer than sunshine,

Your mama may have blessed the child that's got his own (Hey Hey),
If god has plans with me, I hope it ain't written in stone (Hey Hey),
And Cos' I've been working, working, myself down to the bone,
And I swear on Grandpa's grave I'll be paid when I come home (Hey Hey),

Well I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Said I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need (Hey Hey),
Well I need a dollar, dollar, a dollar that's what I need,
And if I share with you my story, would you share your dollar with me?
Come on; share your dollar with me,
Go ahead; share your dollar with me,
Come on; Share your dollar, Gimme' your dollar,
Share your dollar with me,

Come on; share your dollar with me-
