How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live

Bruce Springsteen

 GDG
Well, the doctor comes 'round here with his face all bright     
 D
And he says "in a little while you'll be alright"  
 GCAm
All he gives is a humbug pill, a dose of dope and a great big bill    
 GDCGCGCGCD
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?  
 GD
He says "me and my old school pals had some might high times down here
 D
And what happened to you poor black folks, well it just ain't fair"          
 GCAm
He took a look around gave a little pep talk, said "I'm with you" then he took a little walk
 GDCGCGCGCD
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live? 
 GDG
There's bodies floatin' on Canal and the levees gone to Hell         
 D
Martha, get me my sixteen gauge and some dry shells          
 G
Them who's got got out of town
 CAm
And them who ain't got left to drown   
 GDCDG
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?                   
 DG
I got family scattered from Texas all the way to Baltimore        
 DC
And I ain't got no home in this world no more            
 GCAm
Gonna be a judgment that's a fact, a righteous train rollin' down this track           
 GDCGCGCGCD
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?
