Penny to My Name Lyrics

Artist: Eva Cassidy
Album: Wonderful World

Bill and I got married following our first born
Daddy left this gas & convenience store just before he died
And I was only nineteen when I had my third baby
And sometimes I think maybe I should€™ve left here long ago

Travellers are stopping by, check their oil and their p.s.i.
Gas up and away to fly, moving down the line
But this beat-up truck & worn out shoes always give me the blues
Billy sucking down the booze nearly every night

Chorus:- I never seen the city lights
How they must shine so bright
Not like this country night
The sky€™s black as coal
And this gas-station mountain home
Not a thing to call my own
How I wish I was alone
With a penny to my name

Strangers say this mountain here is beautiful beyond compare
But it€™s just a dumb old mountain; I see it every day
If I could see sunset skies over fields of green or ocean-tides,
City skyline in the night, I€™ll be dancing till the dawn

Chorus:- I never seen€

Bill and I got married following our first born
Daddy left this gas & convenience store just before he died
Maybe Bill & I someday will find a chance to get away
Until then it€™s here I€™ll stay wishing on a star

Chorus:- I never seen€
