Last Two Dollars
by Johnnie Taylor



A lady at the casino
She lost all of her money
She said don't feel sorry for me..no
Don't feel sorry honey

But if you want to do a lady a favor
Here's what I want you to do
Just loan me 2 dollars
Until the next time I see you.

But these last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
These last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
One's going for my bus fare
Other one for the jukebox
To hear me some blues

She said I wouldn't be over here
If my man had been treating me right
I came here to try to catch him, yeah
'Cause he's been sneaking around every night

But I got caught up over here
Got caught up in this scene
And put all of my money
In that doggone gambling machine

But these last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
These last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
One's going for my bus fare
Other one for the jukebox
To hear me some blues

Lady at the casino
Lost all of her money yeah
She said don't feel sorry
Don't feel sorry honey

If you want to do a lady a favor
Here's what I want you to do
Just loan me 2 dollars
Until the next time I see you.

But these last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
These last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
One's for my bus fare
Other one for the jukebox
To hear me some blues, oh yea

These last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
These last 2 dollars
I'm not gonna lose
I've learned my lesson and now baby
I wanna hear some blues
Alright now

These last 2 dollars, naw
I'm not gonna lose
These last 2 dollars
I sho' ain't gone lose
Got one for my bus fare
Other one for the jukebox
I gotta hear me some blues
Yea yea I think I said that again

These last two dollars
I'm not gonna lose
These last two dollars
I sho' ain't gonna lose
One goes for the bus fare
Other one for the jukebox
I gotta hear me some down home blues
