Another Love Song [lyrics]

[I am still working on the music, been playing a simple f,c,g,c]

[Folk style, with drawl; e.g. “if I had a NI-CKLEEEEEEE…”]


If I had a nickel for every dollar I spent

I’d have myself about an extra fifty cent

Since I never spent it, it is in the bank for you

For our loves coming wedding to do

With a dollar twenty I go to the store

Been eating ramen for 3 years, maybe more

I may not look healthy, I’m saving those times for you

All my love is in the bank for a wedding to do

If I had a nickel for every dollar I spent

I’d have myself about an extra fifty cent

Since I never spent it, it is in the bank for you

For our acreage, and our farm, after honeymoon

A hundred ninety-five, for acreage and a home

We will have some chillin’ an raise em’ not to roam

School em’ in our love, under caring arm

Willing them our fishing poles, and our farm

If I had a nickel for every dollar I spent

I’d have myself about an extra fifty cent

Since I never spent it, it is in the bank for you

For our longing love to come true

I am getting older, my time may have past

But to the young’ns a lesson I’d like to pass

If you’d like to see all the worlds dreams come true

Save up all your nickels for a wedding to do

Fight and scrape in love, hoping just to pass

A better life for those that will come to last

If you really care about the world dropping arms

Focus on the family, and on the farm

So, if you have a nickel for every dollar you spend

Learn not to spend it, till you see a loving end

The fight for the family, is where we should begin

Thank you for listening to your uncles song again

So, if you have a nickel for every dollar you spend

Learn not to spend it, save it for a loving end

And when you find those open loving arms

Bring them home to family, and farm
