1. Jar Of Pennies

From the recording Plenty

In cart Not available Out of stock


You've had food on your table

A roof over your head

You’re willing but unable

to explain the tears you shed

Fortune smiles on you God's child

Through all your trials you've not stood alone

Now you say you'll be on your way

Just point you in the direction home

And you judge yourself

Like no on else

You say it can't be helped

Who else is there to blame?

Took your jar of pennies to the wishing well

And dropped them in one by one

You watched each one as it fell

Stood there waiting for your wishes to come

As time went by you'd forgotten why

You stood there and what it is you wished for

When your wishes came your wish had changed

You didn't want them anymore

And the wanderlust still grips you

Takes your trust and trips you

Tell me who's gonna miss you

When you’re gone?
