D                         G         D
Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
D                          G         D
She made me a shirt out of fives and dimes
          G               D/F#             D/E   Emin11   
Now she's gone but when I wear it she crosses my mind 
           D                             G         D  
And if the best is for the best then the best is unkind


I realized that Illinois was more than I could stand 
They say working's best 'cause poverty is hell on a man 
Now I ride a lazy river through the Mississippi fan
And if the best is for the best then the best can be damned

I spent a few years on the Queen of Spain
She was a leaky little boat that went up in flames       
When the boiler blew some people started naming names 
But if the best is for the best I guess the best is to blame
     
I spent a few more as the Cairo Crown    
A heavyweight wrestler in the Midwest towns    
But I was lonesome for a girl who could pin me down 
They say the best is for the best but that's not what I've found

repeat intro

Now I listen to my sweetheart and I listen to my thirst   
I don't spend time listening to other people's words       
Sometimes they're right most times the reverse    
They say the best is for the best when the best is for the worse

Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
She made me a shirt out of fives and dimes   
Now she's gone but when I wear it she crosses my mind     
And if the best is for the best then the best is unkind

Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times 
Once I knew a girl in the hard hard times
