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)

Flawless American Folk--belted out with that good strong choir voice of yours. I love it.

You stand next to Pete Segar in my book. Segarbox John, folk preservationist.
