Looking for lyrics to Greenback Dollar, version done by the Kingston Trio. There are 2 other versions on DT, but not this one. Nothing against the lads, but I don't want to buy the whole album just for this one song, which is fun.

Transcribed by RB

Some people say I'm a no-'count.
Others say I'm no good,
But I'm just a natural born traveling man,
Doin' what I think I should, oh yeah,
Doin' what I think I should.

REFRAIN: And I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar
Spend it fast as I can
But a wailing song a good guitar
The only thing that I understand, poor boy
The only thing that I understand.

When I was a little baby
My Mama said hey son
Travel where you will and learn to be a man
And sing what must be sung, poor boy
Sing what must be sung

Now that I've grown to be a man
I've traveled here and there
I've learned that a bottle of brandy and a song
The only ones who ever cared, poor boy
The only ones who ever cared.
