From the recording How To Make A Dime

A swaggering blues rock song about a confidence man telling his tale

Lyrics

I got the strength and the will, the skill and the time
To pull another dollar bill from where the sun don't shine
I'm gonna make another killin' off the meek and the kind
'Cuz it's the only way I know how to make a dime

I'm drawin' blood from a stone like it was fruit on the vine
I only take what I'm owed and leave the rest behind
And I don't try to atone for all the things that I've done
'Cuz it's the only way I know how to make a dime

I'll look you straight in the eye and then I'll feed you a line
But you'll believe what I say because I'm dressed to the nines
I'm gonna earn your trust, but then I'll rob you blind
'Cuz it's the only way I know how to make a dime

I got a hell of a deal if you get in on time
You're gonna make a million dollars man without even tryin'
Just sign you name right here upon the dotted line
'Cuz it's the only way I know how to make a dime

I got no time to waste upon the boring corporate grind
I'm gonna make it to the top without an uphill climb
I gotta better way to go about and get what's mine
'Cuz it's the only way I know how to make a dime

I beg, borrow or steal, wheel deal and divine
'Cuz there's another willing soul at every exit sign
And if you don't get caught you can't call it a crime
And it's the only way I know how to make a dime
Yeah it's the only way I know how to make a dime
