Intro:  Just play F# C#7 G#m7 in different orders

          F#                C#7        F#7
Well, the summer day make a white man lazy
B                     F#
 Well, all I've ever known is poor
C#7                   F#
Owe my skin to the country store
G#m7              F#7
Dont own my walls, my roof, my door
C#7
But he tells me I'm free
B                F#
But I fight the will to live
C#7                 F#
Hell might take but heaven gives
G#m7                  F#7
It's the only one so I'll forgive
C#7                  
And Im not the one to grieve

        F#                 C#7       F#7
And the summer day make a white man lazy
     F#          C#7          F#7
He sits on his porch killing time
B                F#              G#m7
I gotta work to feed my wife and baby
F#                  C#7              F#7
I work so god damn hard that it's a crime

B                        F#
Well, I went down to the polling place
C#7                       F#
The white men there just laughed in my face
       G#m7               F#
Saying boy, this aint no nigger's race
    C#7
You best get on your way
B                    F#
Sir, I believe I've got the right
         C#7                  F#
Said you aint got nothing if you aint white
       G#m7              F#
And I thought I said get out of sight
      C#7
Well, what was I to say?

        F#                 C#7       F#7
And the summer day make a white man lazy
     F#          C#7          F#7
He sits on his porch killing time
B                F#              G#m7
I gotta work to feed my wife and baby
F#                  C#7              F#7
I work so god damn hard that it's a crime

     B                F#
When I was 'bout the age of five   
C#7               F#
Watched my daddy burned alive
G#m7                       F#
They cut him low and they hung him high
C#7
Swayin' in the breeze
B                F#
The last words I heard him say
C#7                   F#                    
Before they stole his life that day
    G#m7                       F#
Was forgive them lord, they've gone astray
     C#7
Now take me to my knees

         F#               C#7        F#7
And the summer day make a white man lazy
F#             C#7            F#7
He sits on his porch killing time
          F#           G#m7            B      F#      
But the summer day make a nigger feel crazy
F#                  C#7             F#7
Might make me do something out of line



Solo (figure it out. Same chords...)


B                    F#
Well, I dont know but I heard tell
     C#7               F#
Of a furnace below a place called hell
     G#m7               F#
And who would catch me if I fell?
C#7
Who would pray for me?
B              F#
But one thing I see for sure
     C#7            F#
It's hot as hell up here I know
         G#m7             F#
And the devil lives right down the road
C#7
It's all the same to me

         F#               C#7        F#7
And the summer day make a white man lazy
F#             C#7            F#7
He sits on his porch killing time
          F#           G#m7            B      F#      
But the summer day make a nigger feel crazy
F#                  C#7             F#7
Might make me do something out of line

       D#m               B (E barre shape)
But if you should see my wife
                F#            C#7
Tell her that I wont be home tonight
    D#m              B  (E barre shape)
So dont leave on the light
F#                              G#m7 C#7 
I got a little buisness down the road
    D#m            B (E barre)
And If I'm dead by sunrise
F#                   C#7
Kiss my baby girl for me
       D#m               B (E barre)
It aint life if it aint free
F#             C#7        F#
I got a mighty burden to unload
