"One Eye Dollar (Beale Street Version)" as written by and Neil Fallon Dan Maines....
I been working, one eye dollar
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
I been working, one eye dollar
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye

I got the plans to the Oval Office
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
I got the plans in my front pocket
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye

In the inner chambers of the President
You will find no crosses, only pentagrams
Beelzebub and business suits
On the hot line, all right

I been working, one eye dollar
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
I been working, one eye dollar
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
I been working like a pack mule every day

And to think that some of it ends up that way

    General CommentFrom pro-rock.com:

    "When we were touring we got in the habit of jamming Electric Worry straight into One Eye Dollar. We tried to write a new tune that would do the same trick, but nothing was as good. So we said screw it, let's just track it again. I was never happy with the lyrics on the original version, so this was a good opportunity to do some editing."

    General CommentI like pretty much all the new stuff, but I have to agree that the songs on Jam Room (Sink 'Em Low, One Eye Dollar, and I Send Pictures) were just fine the first time.
