I Wasted A Nickel Last Night

Song Author Shorty Long og Bob Newman Performer: Hawkshaw Hawkins Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I put a nickel in the telephone
[C]To find out dear if you'd be home
[D7]I wasted a nickel last [G]night


I guess I've wished a million times
[C]It hadn't been a party line
[D7]I wasted a nickel last [G]night

I [C]heard you tell a friend of mine
[G]That I was not the one
[A7]Why did you play me for a fool
[D7]So you could have your fun

[G]If I had known it from the start
[C]It might have saved a broken heart
[D7]The nickel I wasted last [G]night


I lost a nickel but I lost much more
[C]It seems I hear it o'er and o'er
[D7]I wasted a nickel last [G]night


My castles have all fallen down
[C]I saw them tumble to the ground
[D7]A nickel changed it all last [G]night

But [C]someday when your world gets lonely
[G]And your friends are few
[A7]The door of love is open dear
[D7]I'm waiting here for you

[G]A nickel has it's story told
[C]Of love not worth its weight in gold
[D7]I wasted a nickel last [G]night


I put a nickel in the telephone
To find out dear if you'd be home
I wasted a nickel last night

I guess I've wished a million times
It hadn't been a party line
I wasted a nickel last night

I heard you tell a friend of mine
That I was not the one
Why did you play me for a fool
So you could have your fun

If I had known it from the start
It might have saved a broken heart
The nickel I wasted last night

I lost a nickel but I lost much more
It seems I hear it o'er and o'er
I wasted a nickel last night

My castles have all fallen down
I saw them tumble to the ground
A nickel changed it all last night

But someday when your world gets lonely
And your friends are few
The door of love is open dear
I'm waiting here for you

A nickel has it's story told
Of love not worth its weight in gold
I wasted a nickel last night
