Two Dollar Bill ~ AKA Long Journey Home

(G) Lost all my money but a two dollar bill,
[C] Two dollar bill boys, a two dollar [G] bill.
Lost all my money but a [Em] two dollar bill,
And I'm [G] on my [D] long journey [G] home.

Cloudy in the West and it looks like rain.
Looks like rain, boys, looks like rain.
Cloudy in the West and it looks like rain.
I’m on my long journey home

Homesick and lonely and feeling blue.
I'm feeling blue, I'm feeling blue.
Homesick and lonely and feeling blue.
I’m on my long journey home.

There’s black smoke a rising it's surely a train.
Surely a train, surely a train There’s black smoke a rising it's surely a train.
I’m on my long journey home.

(Repeat Verse One)

 But that's a 1950 plate, Pick.  Maybe that two bucks would have bought ten cups of coffee and 20 candy bars.  That would take a body purty far.  Thank you, sir.

Thanks, Dave.  It is kind of a feeling good song.
