The Balled of One Thin Dime…

Danny lives down in the valley
down where the sweet grass grows..
Danny lives down in the valley
down where the sweet grass grows..

Danny makes corn cob  pipes
down where the sweet grass grows
Danny sells his corn cob pipes..
down where the sweet grass grows.

He sells his pipes for one thin dime
Danny sells them for one thin dime
danny sells his corn cob pipes
in the valley for one thin dime..

One day old Charlie from down by the river
Stopped by like he does all the time..
Old Charlie brought fish from the river
and bought himself a pipe for a dime..

they talked about peace . talked about war
and they cooked that fish just fine…
they talked about kids & the lives they lived
And Charlie said the pipe smoked fine…..

then Charlie said:
What can you buy for dime old Danny?
what can you buy for a dime.?.
living in this day and time
tell me, what can you buy with a dime?

Danny said..
one thin dime brought you here Charlie
One thin dime bought your time.
I enjoyed a meal and it tasted fine
that’s what i got for the dime…

that’s what i got for a dime….

Now..
If you get down his way take some time
if you get down his way spend some time
You can buy a hand made corn cob pipe
from Danny for one thin dime..

Danny lives down in the valley
down where the sweet grass grows
Danny lives down in the valley
down where the sweet grass grows..

Today I’m going down to the valley
I’m taking some Lobster and wine…
I’m buying me a corn cob pipe
and i hope Old Charlie’s on time..

we’ll talk about peace. talk about war
And we’ll cook that Lobster just fine..
we’ll talk about our kids & the lives we live
and we’ll all have a mighty fine time…
