Here you go:

ONE MORE DOLLAR (Gillian Welch/David Rawlings)

A long time ago I left my home
For a job in the fruit trees
But I missed those hills with the windy pines
For their song seemed to suit me

So I sent my wages to my home
And said we'd soon be together
For the next good crop would pay my way
And I would come home forever

One more dime to show for my day
One more dollar and I'm on my way
When I reach those hills, boys, I'll never roam
One more dollar and I'm going home

No work and the boss at the bunk house door
There's a freeze on the branches
So when the dice came out at the bar downtown
I rolled and I took my chances


A long time ago I left my home
Just a boy passing twenty
Could you spare a coin and a Christmas prayer
For my luck has turned against me


One more dollar, boys
I'm going home
