Don Mclean – Orphans Of Wealth tab

                             ORPHANS OF WEALTH - Don Mclean
Tabbed by:Trephinix

Tuning:EADGBE, Capo on 1st fret

note: he uses a lot of little fills, but they are easy to figure out when
you listen to the recording. The main ones are: on the G chord that ends 
the chorus and every second line in the verse he plays something on the 
low E string like: |-0--2--0-| and he plays an F# note between the G and Em
chords in the verse and chorus. Before the Final G in the outro he plays:

G D G Em There is no time to discuss or debate C D G What is right, what is wrong for our people G D G Em Time has run out for all those who wait C D G With bent limbs and minds that are feeble Chorus: G Em C D And the rain falls and blows through their window G Em C D And the snow falls and blows through their door G Em C D And the seasons revolve 'mid their sounds of starvation G Em C G When the tides rise, they cover the floor G D G Em And they come from the north and they come from the south C D G And they come from the hills and they valleys G D G Em And they're migrants and farmers and miners and humans C D G Our census neglected to tally chorus G D G Em And they're African, Mexican, Caucasian, Indian C D G Hungry and hopeless Americans G D G Em The orphans of wealth and of adequate health C D G Disowned by this nation they live in G D G Em And with weather-worn hands On bread lines they stand C D G Yet but one more degradation G D G Em Yes, and they're treated like tramps While we sell them food stamps C D G This thriving and prosperous nation Chorus G D G Em And with roaches and rickets and rats in the thickets C D G Infested, diseased, and decaying G D G Em With rags and no shoes and skin sores that ooze C D G By the poisonous pools they are playing G D G Em In shacks of two rooms that are rotting wood tombs C D G With corpses breathing inside them G D G Em Yes, and we pity their plight as they call in the night C D G And we do all that we can do to hide them outro: G Em C D And the rain falls and blows through their window G Em C D And the snow falls in white drifts that fall G Em C D and the tides rise, with floods in the nursery G Em and a child is crying C D hes hungry and cold C D his life has been sold C D his young face looks old C D G its the face of america dying ===============================================================================
