About Hole in My Pocket

"Hole in My Pocket" is a song co-written by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, and recorded by American country music artist Ricky Van Shelton. It was released in March 1989 as the third single from his album Loving Proof. The song reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and became a number 1 hit in Canada. Shelton's version was an updated rendition of the original recording by Grand Ole Opry artist Little Jimmy Dickens, recorded in Nashville on April 16, 1958 with a small group of Nashville session players including guitarists Grady Martin and Harold Bradley. Though Dickens was known for his earthy hard country songs, this one was a hard rocker in the Chuck Berry mode. While the Dickens version was not a hit, Shelton's recording, despite some modern touches, closely followed the 1958 arrangement.

I got a hole in my pocket and I can't go to the fair
I got a hole in my pocket and I can't go to the fair
I'm blue cause I can't meet my baby there

Well I don't show up what will my baby do
Well I don't show up what will my baby do
She'll trifle and cuddle and love with someone new

Well ooh ooh ooh what will I do
My money's all gone and my baby is through
I got a hole in my pocket and I don't know what to do

I got a hole in my pocket and my money just runs on through
I got a hole in my pocket and my money just runs on through
Can't see a silver dollar but my baby darlin' wants them to

I told my baby have a little fun tonight
I told my baby have a little fun tonight
But it won't be so funny when there'll be no money in sight

Well ooh ooh ooh what will I do
Well ooh ooh ooh what will I do
Yeah I got a hole in my pocket and I don't know what to do
