Rick --

That line is:

"Eagle on the dollar says 'in God we trust'
Woman wants a man, she wants to see a dollar fust."

And here's a few more verses, which, like most of these others, seem to work in most standard blues ditties:

"Two old ladies, sittin' in the sand,
Each one wishin' that the other was a man.

Apples on the table, peaches on the shelf,
Looking for a woman, tired of sleeping by myself.

Never been no doctor, nor no doctor-man's son,
But I'll work on your case 'til your doctor-man come.

Never been no plumber, nor no plumber-man's son,
But I can clean your pipes 'til your plumber-man come.

Hope it's helpful.
