A Handful Of Dimes


The weeds are brown and dry along the Indiana blacktop
And the heat waves on the highway make it shine
Got your picture in my pocket with your number on the back
And A Handful Of Dimes 

It's been cloudy in Atlanta, and the weatherman said rain
But now the sun comes shinin' through the blinds
I was in the shower when the phone rang
And you made the weather change
With a Handful of Dimes 

I sold the Chevy in the city to a man for twenty dollars
And Chicago doesnít even know Iím gone
Chicago never needed you the way I do right now
And you know you kept me waiting too long 

With a little bit of luck I'll catch a truck down through Kentucky
And I'll see you then by Thursday suppertime
Baby, we'll get by, we can make it if we try
On a Handful of Dimes 

I sold the Chevy in the city to a guy for twenty dollars
And Chicago donít even know Iím gone
Chicago never needed you the way I do right now
And you know you kept me waiting too long 

With a little bit of luck there'll be a truck down through Kentucky
I'll see you then by Thursday suppertime
Baby weíll get by, we can make it if we try
On a Handful of Dimes
