IF YOU PASS A PENNY
KERRY PATRICK CLARK © 1991

He always said a Saturday is made especially
To be with your Grandpa so it was him and me
We would stroll together along the country roads
These are the times I treasure most

CHORUS
If You Pass A Penny pick it up
All through the day it will bring you luck
Love unto others as you would be loved
If You Pass A Penny pick it up

Grandpa told me stories of what a penny used to buy
A handful of candy a slice of apple pie
And why he started saving 'cause his family was poor
He wanted things they never could afford

Grandpa kept the Mason jar above the fireplace
That's where we put the money we found along the way
I would try to hold the tears when it was time to leave
That's when Grandpa always said to me

CHORUS
If You Pass A Penny pick it up
All through the day it will bring you luck
Love unto others as you would be loved
If You Pass A Penny pick it up

BRIDGE
My Grandfather died when I was only ten
My Grandmother came to me and said

I give to you these pennies saved up through the years
A Mason jar of memories that you and Grandpa shared
Now some may say your Grandfather was nothing but a crazy fool
For saving worthless pennies but these to him were always part of you

CHORUS
If You Pass A Penny pick it up
All through the day it will bring you luck
Love unto others as you would be loved
If You Pass A Penny pick it up
