    This is the chorus of Joni Mitchell's "Morning Morgantown":

    Morning Morgantown
    Buy your dreams a dollar down
    Morning any town you name
    Morning's just the same

    What does "Buy your dreams a dollar down" mean?

    "Compra i tuoi sogni per meno di un dollaro"?

    Potrebbe far riferimento al "down payment" il pagamento in contanti che si versa, di solito come anticipo, per acquistare qualcosa.
    Quindi
    "compra i tuoi sogni per un dollaro" (cash...)

    Yes, a dollar down means a dollar down payment or a dollar per installment. Dreams are cheap or dreams are easy to realize.
