The Poor House
B. Thornton
The Boxmasters



INTRO: G


G                                     Em
We know it's sparklin' ahead, honey I thought I'd give a call
C                                       D
Lookin' for tomorrow to be sunny in the midst of this snowfall
     G                         Em
I've let you and the kids down way too long now
    C                                       D
I'm hopin' to turn our life around if I can just figure out how


CHORUS:
                 G
I'm workin' on a plan to save our home
                   C                         D
Keep us out of the poor house, pay off those loans
                 G          
I'm workin' on a plan to save our home
                   C           D                 G
Keep us out of the poor house, and I won't do it stoned


I'll sit with the grannies at the nickel machines and pull handles 'til my hands are blue
I'll do just about anything to bring a future home to you
I put down the pails of liquor, you know I tried to keep a job
I just think this'll be quicker if I can win a little off the mob


CHORUS:
I'm workin' on a plan, to save our home
Keep us out of the poor house, pay off those loans
I'm workin' on a plan to save our home
Keep us out of the poor house, now that i'm not stoned


(KEY CHANGE TO A)

        A                                    Fm
Well my plan didn't work exactly honey but I do have a little good news
    D                                 E
I'm not bringin' home any money but I didn't turn back to booze
  A                                      Fm
I guess it's back to the drawin' board, ideas are startin' to brew
    D                                         E
I'm bringin' back all I can afford and that's love to the kids and you


CHORUS:
                 A
I'm workin' on a plan to save our home
                   D                         E
Keep us out of the poor house, pay off those loans
                 A
I'm workin' on a plan to save our home
                   D           E                    A
Keep us out of the poor house, and build a house of stone

A
Huh, uh-huh-huh
       D        E
Uh-huh-huh, huh-huh
       A 
Uh-huh-huh, uh-huh-huh
       D   E     A
Uh-huh-huh,  huh-huh
