lyrics

There’s one hundred buttons in this antique shop
I’m looking for one that reminds me of you
If you don’t think I’ll find it, well then, I’m sure you won’t mind it
When I sew it to my coat for when I am blue

You’re the eight o’clock sun on a summer’s day
I thought you’d already gone away
But there are folks at the equator who have never seen you later
Then when they bow their heads at supper time to pray

There’s one hundred buttons in this antique shop
I’m looking for one that reminds me of you
If you don’t think I’ll find it, well then, I’m sure you won’t mind it
When I sew it to my coat for when I am blue

You’re a protest song back in ‘65
Trying to keep the freedom alive
But if you’re fixing to get tied down, there’s no better place than this town
Here I was born, here I live, and here I will die

There’s one hundred buttons in this antique shop
I’m looking for one that reminds me of you
If you don’t think I’ll find it, well then, I’m sure you won’t mind it
When I sew it to my coat for when I am blue

I pin ice cubes with my straw
Just like you, they don’t stay put for long
You told me your family is struggling
But you went to Europe to see your cousin
Well, I can wait; I can’t wait that long

There’s one hundred buttons in this antique shop
I’m looking for one that reminds me of you
If you don’t think I’ll find it, well then, I’m sure you won’t mind it
When I sew it to my coat for when I am blue

There’s one hundred buttons in this antique shop
I found me one that reminds me of you
And you can’t call it stealing, because this button is here for me and
God gave me a heart to give to you
So now I’ve got a button for when I am blue
