I Wish I Had A Nickel-crd   Hank Williams

This is the work of Tim Ausburn. List under Hank Williams.
Writer, W.S. Barnhart & Tommy Sutton. Hank did a demo probably 1949.


(G) They tell me little darlin',

That to- (C) morrow you'll be (G) wed,

You thought that you would hurt me,

But you (A7) hurt yourself in- (D7) stead,

I'll (G) always be the same old pal,

Just (C) as in years gone (G) by,

I'll (C) just set back and (G) watch you,

While you (D7) set alone and (G) cry.

(G) Tears fallin' (C) down your pretty (G) cheeks,

Tears you cannot hide and (A7) tears you cannot (D7) keep,

(G) **They** are tears of sorrow and (C) tears of de- (G) light,

I wish I had a nickel, for every (D7) tear you shed last (G) night.
I just dropped by to tell you that I wish you happi-ness,
I hope that you'll forgive me for in-truding like this,
I hope my dear your happiness will follow through the years,
I'll just set back and watch you, while you shed those bitter tears.

Repeat chorus:

** ** First time = They,   Second time = There.
