A Dollar Down and a Dollar a Week

A Dollar Down and a Dollar a Week

Woody Guthrie

Friend of mine bought an automobile
At a dollar down and a dollar a week
Every time he turned the wheel
It was a dollar down and a dollar a week

He went riding down the road
Pinched this girl upon her cheek
Speed cop took him to the judge
He got a dollar down and a dollar a week

Sixty days he laid in jail
At a dollar down and a dollar a week
Another man was a lovin' his gal
At a dollar down and a dollar a week

When he got out he shot the man
And he laid him in the graveyard six feet deep
And when he bought the graveyard spot
It was a dollar down and a dollar a week
