      About "Indian Head Penny"

      Lyrics for Billy Dean - "Indian Head Penny"

      I rolled off the Frisco mint in 1909
      The last one they ever made, you should've seen me shine
      When I landed on the counter they gave me to a kid
      Making change for a jaw breaker was the first thing that I did

      I got traded for a pocket knife, two marbles and some string
      Wound up on a railroad track waiting for a train
      Snatched up by a hobo and turned right into wine
      Pitched up against the wall at least a thousand times

      Round and round a penny goes
      Round and back again
      Listen and I'll tell you
      The places that I've been

      I was stolen from a banker by Pretty Boy Floyd and then
      He gave me to a farmer who was trying to save his land
      I was good luck to a soldier back in world war two
      He lost me in a poker game the day the war was through

      I got stuck behind the back seat of a '51 Chevrolet
      Spare change in the sixties, getting worthless every day
      Not it's piggy banks and gum machines and occasional wishing wells
      Or laying on a bar room floor

      As far and wide
      So both of us can dare
      A promise I will love and bide
      That's all I have to share

      A chance to sail among the stars
      That few will ever see
      To feel the deepest missing you
      That most think cannot be
      A heart that beats for only one
      And loves you fast and true
      A promise I will love and bide
      That's all I have for you
      These things I have to give to you
      Their value isn't much
      Just things that you can barely see
      And rarely ever touch

      A hand to hold when we're alone
      And no one seems to care
      A gentle touch to reassure
      And tell you I'm still there
      To try my best to reminisce
      Our dreams that all come true
      A promise I will love and bide
      That's all I have for you
      My promise I will love and bide
      This I give to you
