Queen Of The Silver Dollar

Song Author Shel Silverstein Performer: Emmylou Harris Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]She arrives in all her splendor
Every [C]night at nine o'clock
And her [D7]chariot is the cross town bus
That stops right down the [G]block


Then the old piano minstrel
Plays her [C]song as she walks in
And the [D7]Queen of the Silver Dollar
She's home [G]again

She's the Queen of the [C]Silver [G]Dollar
And she rules this [C]smokey [G]kingdom
And her scepter [C]is a [G]wine glass
And this [A7]bar stool is her [D7]throne

And the [G]jesters [C]flock [G]around her
And fight to [C]win her [G]favors
And see which [C]one will [G]take
The [C]Queen Of the [G]Silver [D7]Dollar [G]home


Her royal gown is a satin dress
That's [C]stained and slightly torn
And her [D7]sparkling jewels are rhinestones
And her shoes are scuffed and [G]worn

From the [G]many roads she's traveled
And the [C]wondrous sites she's seen
And I [D7]watch her and I pray
God save the [G]Queen

She's the Queen of the [C]Silver [G]Dollar
And she rules this [C]smokey [G]kingdom
And her scepter [C]is a [G]wine glass
And this [A7]bar stool is her [D7]throne

The Queen of the Silver Dollar's
Is not as [C]haughty as she seems
She wa[D7]s once an ordinary girl
With ordinary [G]dreams


But there’s a man that found her
And he [C]brought her to this world
He’s[D7] the one who made a Queen
Of a simple country [G]girl

She's the Queen of the [C]Silver [G]Dollar
And she rules this [C]smokey [G]kingdom
And her scepter [C]is a [G]wine glass
And this [A7]bar stool is her [D7]throne

She arrives in all her splendor
Every night at nine o'clock
And her chariot is the cross town bus
That stops right down the block

Then the old piano minstrel
Plays her song as she walks in
And the Queen of the Silver Dollar
She's home again

She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar
And she rules this smokey kingdom
And her scepter is a wine glass
And this bar stool is her throne

And the jesters flock around her
And fight to win her favors
And see which one will take
The Queen Of the Silver Dollar home

Her royal gown is a satin dress
That's stained and slightly torn
And her sparkling jewels are rhinestones
And her shoes are scuffed and worn

From the many roads she's traveled
And the wondrous sites she's seen
And I watch her and I pray
God save the Queen

She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar
And she rules this smokey kingdom
And her scepter is a wine glass
And this bar stool is her throne

The Queen of the Silver Dollar's
Is not as haughty as she seems
She was once an ordinary girl
With ordinary dreams

But there’s a man that found her
And he brought her to this world
He’s the one who made a Queen
Of a simple country girl

She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar
And she rules this smokey kingdom
And her scepter is a wine glass
And this bar stool is her throne
