Twenty Dollar Bill 

Music and Lyrics by Sarah Jane Scouten

Magpie Waltz 2011

 

Twenty dollar bill, twenty dollar bill

You and me go dancing and drinking up our fill

Twenty dollar bill, I’m dressing up to kill

Well I’m counting to ten twice, now you come home

 

Twenty months or more, twenty months or more

I keep knocking at the front you head out the back door

Twenty months or more, what do you take me for?

Well I’m counting to ten twice, now you come home

 

Twenty bails of hay, twenty bails of hay

Your horses they ain’t hungry no matter what I say

Twenty bails of hay, twenty bails too late

Well I’m counting to ten twice, now you come home

 

Twenty long dead years, twenty long dead years

I’d roll over in my grave to see you shed a tear

Twenty long dead years, but your time’s coming near

Well I’m counting to ten twice now you come home

 

Twenty dollar bill, twenty dollar bill

You and me go dancing and drinking up our fill

If you don’t take me home, I know someone who will

Well I’m counting to ten twice now you come home

Well I’m counting to ten twice now you come home
