Tom Biggs' Bottom Dollar

By Rob Morris

He tapped his bottom dollar, Joe,
When that poor barefoot child
Came moaning through the drifted snow,
With cold and hunger wild
Tom Biggs himself is old and poor
And has a cough, you know,
But when he saw that wretched girl,
He tapped his bottom dollar, Joe,
Tom tapped his bottom dollar!

I don't believe he'll miss it, Joe,
In that last, solemn rest
To which he's hurrying so fast,
He's shaky, at the best
I rather think the records there
That very coin will show,
And God himself will keep the count
Of Biggs' bottom dollar, Joe
Tom Biggs' bottom dollar!
