One Silver Dollar - by Marilyn Monroe



Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962)
--------

 "One Silver Dollar"
-------
One silver dollar
Bright silver dollar
Changing hands
Changing hands
Endlessly rollin'
Wasted and stolen
Changing hands
Changing hands.

Spent for a beer he's drinkin'
Won by a gamblers lust
Pierced by an outlaw's bullet
And lost in the blood red dust.

One silver dollar
Worn silver dollar
Changing hands
Changing hands.

Love is a shining dollar
Bright as a church bell's chime
Gambled and spent and wasted
And lost in a dawn of time.

Ooh-ooh..., Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh..., Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

One silver dollar
Worn silver dollar
Changing hearts
Changing lives
Changing hands.
