A Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way. D Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day. A Work on Elijah, work on. A Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave. D Poor Elijah, he was damn near blind when he died last week From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day. A Work on Elijah, work on. Chorus: A Poor Elijah. F#m A Poor Elijah. D A Poor Elijah. C#m D A Poor Elijah. TRIBUTE TO JOHNSON A I'm going to sing you a song, a song about a man Nobody hardly knows him. Nobody hardly knows him.
