Nickels and Dimes
Dolly Parton

I Used to Stand On a Corner When I Was a Child
And I'd Play My Guitar and Sing As the People Went By
The Sidewalks Were Crowded But I'd Just Sing Louder Cause I Didn't Mind
Just Spending My Time, Spinning My Rhymes and Singing For Nickels and Dimes
Nickels and Dimes a Song At a Time For Nickels and Dimes
I'd Brighten Their Day As They Go On Their Way and They'd Brighten Mine
A Sidewalk Rehearsal For Dreams That I Held in My Mind
I Knew That Someday in My Own Special I'd Repay All Their Nickels and Dimes

I Recall the Sidewalk Each Night As I Stand On the Stage
As I Play My Guitar and Sing For the People Who Paid
Cause I Finally Made It to What They All Call the Big Time
But I Still Remember I Still Owe Some Nickels and Dimes

Nickels and Dimes a Song At a Time For Nickels and Dimes
A Sidewalk Rehearsal For Dreams That I Held in My Mind
So If You Remember a Child On the Corner of Time
You'll Know That I Wrote This to Repay Your Nickels and Dimes

Nickels and Dimes a Song At a Time For Nickels and Dimes
A Sidewalk Rehearsal For Dreams That I Held in My Mind
So If You Remember a Child On a Corner of Time
You'll Know That I Wrote This to Repay Your Nickels and Dimes

Nickels and Dimes a Song At a Time For Nickels and Dimes
A Sidewalk Rehearsal For Dreams That I Held in My Mind
So If You Remember a Child On a Corner of Time
You'll Know That I Wrote This to Repay Your Nickels and Dimes
