Greenback dollar

Kingston Trio

 Some people say I'm a no count
 Others say I'm no good
but I'm just a natural born traveling man
 doin' what I think I should, oh yea
 Doin' what I think I should

And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
 Spend it fast as I can (C)
But a wailing song and a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, poor boy
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'm a grown 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
