The Dollar

The Dollar

Jamey Johnson

Daddy hugs his little man, says son I've got to go
He pulls out of the drive and disappears
As they walk back in the house the young boy asked his mama
Where does daddy go when he leaves here

Well mama tells her little man your daddy's got a job
And when he goes to work they pay him for his time
The young boy gets to thinkin' heads up to his bedroom
Comes runnin' back with a quarter and four dimes

Says mama how much time will this buy me
Is it enough to take me fishin' or throw a football in the street
If I'm a little short then how much more does daddy need
To spend some time with me

Young boy tells his mama now I know daddy's busy
Cause most times when he gets home it's dark outside
But tell him I've got me some pennies saved up from the tooth fairy
And I keep â??em in a piggy bank and I believe there's thirty-five

And mama how much time will that buy me
Is it enough to take me campin' in a tent down by the creek
If I'm a little short then how much more does daddy need
To spend some time with me

Mama how much time will this buy me
Is it enough for just an afternoon a day or a whole week
If I'm a little short then how much more does daddy need
To spend some time with me

Mama takes her little man sets him on her lap
Starts dialin' up some numbers on the phone
Says daddy come home you don't have to chase that dollar
Cause your little man has got one here at home
