Lucky Penny

Nobody gives the time to find a penny anymore

Not even for a dime will they go looking around the door

But just the other day down on the dark and dungy floor

A penny shone like none I'd ever seen before

 

For far too many years my soul's been lost in shadows deep

Walkin' the wrong road that wasn't paved for me

But just the other day down on the dark and dungy floor

A penny shone like none I'd ever seen before

 

You're my lucky penny

Like the stars you give me hope

Like a fire in the woods

My eyes are lost within your glow

I'm now the riches man in the world I've ever known

For this penny that I've found

has shown it's light on my soul

 

Now when I'm lost and feeling low, this treasure I hold so tight

I thank the Lord for what I've found, I thank the Lord for this new light

For now I've found a shimmering within my dream come true

As I gaze into her face, hair of red, eyes of blue

 

You're my lucky penny

Like the stars you give me hope

Like a fire in the woods

My eyes are lost within your glow

I'm now the riches man in the world I've ever known

For this penny that I've found

has shown it's light on my soul
