Chord-chart by Lynn Lewis
C / F / |Am G C / |
Lord I been hangin' out of town in that low down rain,
C / F / |Am / C / |
Watchin' good time Charlie friend is drivin' me insane,
C / F / |Am G C /|
Down on shady Charlotte Street all the green lights look red,
C / F / |Am G C |
Wish I was back home on the farm in my feather bed.
C / F / |
Get myself a rockin' chair,
Am G C / |
To see if I can lose,
F Em Am G |
Them thin dime, hard times,
F G C / |
Hell on Church Street blues.
Found myself a picker friend who's read yesterday's news,
Folded up page twenty-one and stuck it in my shoe,
Gave a nickle to the poor my good turn for the day,
Folded up my own little folder threw it far away.
Lord I wish I had some guitar strings Old Black Diamond brand,
I'd string up this old Martin box and go and join some band,
But I guess I'll just stay right here just pick and sing a while,
Try to make me a little change and give them folks a smile.
