LAST DOLLAR
As recorded by Blanche Calloway and her Joy Boys, 1931.

I'm not broke, but barely bent.
I'm not down to my last cent.
Got a dollar, my last dollar bill.

In my pocket there's a dent.
All my dough is nearly spent.
Got a dollar, my last dollar bill.

Oh, what luck! Just one more buck
Fortune left me by chance.
Here's a bill, feel like a mill',
You can tell by a glance.

I don't care; no millionaire
Can give me the icy stare.
Got a dollar, my last dollar bill.
