Thread Name: Lyr Req: Silver Dollar / Man without a Woman
Subject: Lyr req: Silver Dollar/Man without a Wom
I came across these two in our search for tunes for songs in the DT. I remember Dusty Springfield singing these in the early 60s on a Springfields album before she went solo. But I think she sang them as one song. So:
  1. Are these two songs or one?
  2. Are there any more verses to either?
  3. Shouldn't the end of Silver Dollar be "from man to man"?

SILVER DOLLAR
You can take a silver dollar and drop it on the ground
And it'll roll, because it's round
A woman never knows what a good man she's got
Until she turns him down

So listen, my honey, listen to me
I want you to understand
As a silver dollar goes from hand to hand
So does a woman go from hand to hand

MAN WITHOUT A WOMAN
Now a man without a woman is like a ship without a sail
Is like a boat without a rudder, or a shirt without a tail
Now a man without a woman is like a wreck upon the sand
But if there is one thing worse in this universe
Then it's a woman, I said a woman
I mean a woman without a man


Wassail! V
