Dollars and Dimes

As a kid in Arkansawyer I got my hambone on
But those days are gone
To get me paid some wages, I rolled out of town
Where I find work is where I'm bound

Indy to Atoka, on roofs and under cars
Building churches, building bars
Tampa to Kalkaska picking fruit off of the trees
Michigan to the Florida Keys

Trying to find, trying to find
Dollars and dimes
Trade my time, dollars and dimes

No pie in the sky when I go
Old Utah Joe he ought to know
From Desolation Canyon to Confusion Range
I'm broken down feeling strange

Trying to find, trying to find
Dollars and dimes
Sell my time, dollars and dimes

Cairo Illinois you better watch out son
Like the Union Army never won
Two rivers join together Mississippi and Ohio
But stay apart as they flow

Trying to find, trying to find
Dollars and dimes
All my time, dollars and dimes

As a kid in Arkansawyer I got my hambone on
But those days are gone
