"Greenback Dollar" by Kingston Trio
Transcribed by Rich Barber

Some people say I'm a no count

Others say I'm no good 

but I'm just a natural born traveling man
D                          Em
doin' what I think I should, oh yea
D                          Em
Doin' what I think I should

[ Tab from: ]
         G                C                    G            C
And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
G              C             G      C
   Spend it fast as a can
          G         C        G         C
But a wailing song a good guitar 
        D                               Em
The only thing that I understand, poor boy
        D                               Em
The only thing that I understand

2nd Verse
When I was a little baby
My Mama said hey son
Travel where you will and learn to be a man
and sing what must be sung, poor boy 
Sing what must be sung

3rd verse
Now that I 've grown to be a man 
I've traveled here and there
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
the only ones who ever cared, poor boy
the only one's who ever cared
