Story Behind the Song

There was always a tradition in my family that taught us to pick up coins, make a wish and put them in our shoes....this song is about that. My grandfather was the one who spread its belief around. Hope you enjoy it.

Broadjam Member Reviews

The introduction had the feel and sound of possibly a James Taylor tune, which in my opinion is a plus. Lyrically you went to possibly a Neil Young sound though your vocals far surpassed those of Neil. Congratulations on a song well done. I enjoyed the visual you created of the pennies in the shoe eluding to wishes made.

    - Randy Steward

love the lyrics, love the story, love the picking,like the way you stretch parkingggggg lots. good stuff really nice work, and I think I know who this is..and I would expect no less.

"Pennies From Parking Lots"

VERSE 1
We followed Grandfather down to the river
He said he had a secret that he wanted to share
Our eyes grew wide with anticipation
As he made copper coins appear from thin air ... they were...

CHORUS
Pennies, pennies he found in parking lots
He would pick them up
And make a wish
And slide them in his shoes
They were magical pennies
Making his dreams come true...

VERSE 2
He said, "Close your eyes and go over ever detail
When you make a wish you hope might come true
And picture in your heart who the wish is really good for
Or you might wind up with only holes in your shoes"

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
My little brother who was always a Doubting Thomas
Said, "How do you know you'll really get the wish you need?"
Grandpa stood up and spread his arms wide
And said, "Children, you are all the proof I need to believe" ... in those...

REPEAT CHORUS

And to this day I've got to say
I'm believing, too
In the magical pennies
Making my dreams come true
