Jonathan Richman - Corner Store chords

      
These are the chords for the song in a key that I find comfortable for singing. 
The original version starts with an Eb chord instead of a G.

This is one of the best songs ever written.


G C GWell I walked past just yesterday
C GAnd I couldn't bear that new mall no more.
C DNow, I can't expect you all to see it my way
C D Em GBut you may not know what was there before
C D C GAnd I want them to put back my old corner store
C GWell I walked past just, uh like I say
C G and I felt this hurt that would not go home
C D I can't expect that you're going to see it my way
C D Em G But you may not know the trees I've known
C D C G And I want them to put back my old corner store.
C D C D I know it cost more money to shop there.
Em Bm Em D But this was love. This was lo-o-o-ove.
C D C D I know you had to pay more money. I'll pay money. I'll pay more!
D D7 I don't care what the mall has got. I want back that corner store!
G C G And what did I feel as I walked by slow?
C G Sorrow. Sorrow all around.
C D Why I would feel sorrow I now know.
C D Em G I smelled a ghost smell from the ground:
C D C G That old wooden smell from the old corner store.
