Bill Anderson - Po' Folks


(verse 1)
           G                           D7                 G
There's a whole lot of people lookin' down their noses at me,
                            D7        G
Cause I didn't come from a wealthy family,
            C                     G
There were ten of us livin' in a two room shack,
        D7                        G
On the banks of the river by the railroad tracks,
    C                  G
We kept chickens in a pen in the back,
                           D7
And ever'body said we were Po' Folks,


(verse 2)
    G                      D7                     G
My daddy was a farmer, but all he ever raised was us,
                                  D7                     G
He dug a forty-foot well, struck thrirty six gallons of dust,
     C                      G
The Salvation Army gave us clothes to wear,
   D7                         G
A man from the County came to cut our hair,
    C                    G 
We lived next door to a millionaire,
    D7                    G
But we wasn't nothin' but Po' Folks,


(chorus)
       C                      G
We was Po' Folks livin' in a rich folks world,
    D7                G
We sure was a hungry bunch,
        C                     G
If the wolf had ever come to our front door,
A7                       D7
He'd a had to brought a picnic lunch,


(verse 3)
My granddaddy's pension was a dollar and thirty-three cents,
That was ten dollars less than the landlord wanted for rent,
The landlord's letters got nasty, indeed,
He wrote Get out, but Pa couldn't read,
And we were too broke, to even pay heed,
But that's how it is, when you're Po' Folks,


(chorus)
       C                      G
We was Po' Folks livin' in a rich folks world,
    D7                G
We sure was a hungry bunch,
        C                     G
If the wolf had ever come to our front door,
A7                       D7
He'd a had to brought a picnic lunch,



(verse 4)
    G                       D7
But we had somethin' in our house, money can't buy,
                             D7                   G
Kept us warm in the winter, cool when the sun was high,
     C                            G
For whenever we didn't have food enough,
         D7                   G
And the howlin' winds, would get pretty rough,
    C                             G
We patched the cracks and set the table with Love,
       D7                             G
Cause that's what you do, when you're Po' Folks,


(ending)
    D7                    G
And we wasn't nothin' but Po' Folks,
    D7                G
My mom and my dad was Po' Folks,
    D7                       G
My brother and my sister was Po' folks,
    D7                G
My dog and my cat was Po' folks,
     D7                    G
And even the Po' Folks was Po' folks,
