A Nickle For The Fiddler Lyrics

A Nickel For The Fiddler - Guy Clark

 

Well it's a nickel for the fiddler It's a nickel for his tune

It's a nickel for the tambourine kind of afternoon

 

And it's a high holiday on the 21st of June

 

And it's country music in the park and everybody's ruined

 

Well it's fountains full of dogs and kids

And it's freaky apple pie

 

And it's the ones who came to play

And the ones just passin' by

And it's coats of many colors

And it almost makes me cry

Lord it's ice cream on a stick

And it's somethin' you can buy

 

Well it's a fiddler from Kentucky

Who swears he's 83

And he's fiddled every contest

From here to cripple creek

 

And it's old ones and it's yound ones

And it's plain they half agreed

But it's country music in the park

As far as they can see

 

Well it's a nickel for the fiddler It's a nickel for his tune

 

It's a nickel for the tambourine kind of afternoon

 

And it's a high holiday on the 21st of June

 

And it's country music in the park and everybody's ruined
