"Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Travis Tritt. It was released in May 1991 as the lead-off single to his album It's All About to Change. It peaked at number 2 in both the United States and Canada. This is one of his most popular songs. When Travis would play this song live, fans would often throw quarters on stage, many hitting him.
The narrator speaks of a former significant other who regrets leaving him, and now wants to include herself in his life once again.
However, the narrator no longer trusts her because of her actions. In response, he gives her a quarter (in 1991, the common price for a local pay telephone call) and tells her to phone someone else who cares to listen.
