I was raised up on the corner in front of a grocery store
F#                                    G#m
Shinin' shoes with the daily news for two bits on the floor
    E                                   B5
But given the chance I'd go back to the days of a simpler time
      F#                                   F#7
Cause this ol' world's gone crazy and I'm about to lose my mind

   E                             B5
My brother drives delivery right down on Dauphine Street
F#                                                G#m
. Had a little house by the railroad track, kinda small but it was neat
E                               B5
The police came and got him for robbin' a liquor store
    F#                               F#7
And even though he didn't do it they got what they came for

It's a poor man who's life is bittersweet
E                                            B5
Doesn't wanna lose that good thing that he's got
         G#m                     F#
But that same ol' government who pays you every week
     A2                               E              F#
Will come and take your home away and put you in the street
