Penny to My Name  Eva Cassidy

SONG: PENNY TO MY NAME
VERSE 1
[C]Bill and I got married f[F]ollowing our first-born
[Dm]Daddy left this gas and [Am]convenience store j[G]ust before he died
[C]And I was only nineteen when I [F]had my third baby
[Dm]Sometimes I think maybe I should[G] have left here long [C]ago
VERSE 2
[C]Travelers are stopping by [F]check their oil and their P.S.I.
[Dm]Gas up and away they fly [Am]moving down the [G]line
[C]But this beat up truck and worn out shoes
[F]Always giving me the blues
[Dm]Bill is sucking down the booze[G] nearly every night
CHORUS:
[F]I've never seen the[G] city lights [C]how they must s[F]hine so bright
[C]Not like this [F]country night the[D] sky's black as c[G]oal
[F]And this gas station [G]mountain home
[C]Not a thing to [F]call my own
[C]I wish I was [F]alone with a [D]penny [G]to my [C]name
VERSE 3
[C]Strangers say this mountain here is [F]beautiful beyond compare
[Dm]But it's just a dumb old mountain there I [Am]see it every d[G]ay
[C]If I could see a sunset skies over [F]fields of grain or ocean tides
[Dm]City skyline in the night I'll be d[G]ancing till the dawn
REPEAT CHORUS:
VERSE 4
[C]Bill and I got married f[F]ollowing our first-born
[Dm]Daddy left this gas and [Am]convenience store j[G]ust before he died
[C]Maybe Bill and I someday will[F] find a chance to get away
[Dm]Until then it's here I'll stay w[G]ishing on a star
REPEAT CHORUS:
END
