Song Description

The life of a bank bill told from the perspective of the 20$ bill where its been and what its seen

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by one too many beers on a frustraing train journey trying to get home one dark night


Chorus I'm a twenty dollar bill, done my time in the till
been in every bar and bank in this town
Every purse and wallet too, I guess I've seen a few
oh lord I like to get around
I can make you grin, help you out or help you in I can help you get your fill
every little thrill, twenty dollar bill

Verse 1 There's little Jessie Mae - oooh on her birthday
her daddy gives her money to spend
So she takes the score down to Alice's store
to have a good time with her friends
Alice takes me home in the back of her blue jeans
I'm squeezed up tight but I don't mind
It's a real close fit but from where I sit everything's looking just fine

Chorus I'm A Twenty Dollar Bill..........

Verse 2 Henry he's got charm and with Alice on his arm
they're steppin' out on the town
first they take a cab, Alice leaves me for the tab with Jake,
and now I'm riding around
Now Jake owes Dan, and Dan is a man who stands about six feet five
Dan wants his dough so the twenty's gotta go '
cause Jake believes in staying alive

Chorus : I'm A Twenty Dollar Bill..........

Verse 3 Now Danny's not a fool, so when Annie wins at pool
he gives her the twenty right away
It's not a lot of fun when Annie gets her gun 'cause Annie's gonna make him pay
and so it goes around, from the sky to the ground
from the cradle to the grave you see
It must be something that I've done - it seems like everyone
wants to get their hands on me

Chorus I'm A Twenty Dollar Bill..........
