The Love of the Common People


Capo 2nd fret G G+9 G G+11 G G+9 G G+11 G G+9 G G+11 Living on free food tickets. G G+9 G G+11 Water in the milk from the hole in the roof F Where the rain came through. C D What can we do? Mm-mm.

G C D Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to, G C D Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, G F - C - G F - C And she can.

It's a good thing you don't have busfare,
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground,
Walking to the town to find a job.
Trying to keep your hands warm,
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through,
And it chills to the bone.
Boy you better go home where it's warm.

And you can live in the love of the common people,
Smiles from the heart of a family man.
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can,

        G   F - C - G   F - C - A   G - D - A   G - D
And she can.


A         Asus4        A   Asus2
Living on dreams ain't easy, 
        A          Asus4     A           Asus2
But the closer the knit, the tighter the fit,
        G
And the chills stay away.
                       D             E
You take them in stride, family pride.
          A        Asus4    A     Asus2
You know, faith is your foundation, 
       A            Asus4      A          Asus2
With a whole lot of love and a warm conversation 
    G
And many a prayer, 
                 D                 E
Making you strong, where you belong.


A                         D         E
Living in the love of the common people, 
A                          D         E
Smiles from the heart of a family man.

Smiles from the heart of a family man.
A                       D        E
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
A                              D              E
Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, yeah...
