Buck Owens - Nugget Lament Lyrics




Well I went to the nugget with my pockets full of money
Big ole diamond rings on my hand
I rolled into town, in a big long Cadillac
I was a man with a plan

With smile on my face I walked up to the table
And threw down a hundred dollar bill
Bakersfield, I'm on my way
Dear old daddy, come through again

They took my bankroll, my diamond rings, my Cadillac
But the thing that hurt the most about the whole danged act
Was the audacity, to smile and say... please hurry back!

So I called up my buddy, and said "lend me some money"
For I could feel a hot streak coming on
Bakersfield, I'm on my way
Dear old daddy, come through again

Alas,
They took my bankroll, my diamond rings, my Cadillac
Had the audacity, to smile and say... please hurry back!
But the thing that hurt the most about the whole danged act
Was when he grinned, said let's be friends... well I thought I'd choke

For if I ever need, a friend again... I'll buy a dog!

    It's first time I hear Buck Owens with one 5 string banjo in this Band. This song is true classic country music. Thank's for upload. Best wishes from a true dvdman49 fan. Jo
