The Johnnys – Green Back Dollar lyrics

Some may call me no account
Others say Im no good
But I'm just a poor travelin man
Doin what I think I should, oh lord
Doin what I think I should

And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
I spend it fast as I can
For a wailin song and a good guitar
That's the only thing I understand, oh lord
The only thing I understand

When I was a child
My mama said hey son
Do what you will, you'll grow to be a man
And sing what must be sung, oh lord
Well I sing what must be sung

But I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
I spend it fast as I can
For a wailin song and a good guitar
That's the only thing I understand, oh lord
The only thing I understand

Now that I've grown to be a man
I've traveled here and there
There's one thing I love, a drink and a song
They're the only ones who ever cared, oh lord
The only ones who ever cared

Well I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
I spend it fast as I can
For a wailin song and a good guitar
That's the only thing I understand, oh lord
The only thing I understand

I dont give a damn about a greenback dollar
I spend it fast as I can
For a wailin song and a good guitar
That's the only thing I understand, oh lord
The only thing I understand

That's all I really understand yeah
That's all I understand yeah
That's all I understand yeah
Thought I'd talk about it yeah
All I understand yeah
