Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Israelite  Desmond Dekker

[A]Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, Sir,
so that every [A7]mouth can be fed.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [F]Aa[G]h.


[A]My wife and my kids, them pack up and-a leave me.
Darling, she said "I was [A7]yours to be seen"
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
[A]Shirt them a tear up, trousers a go.
I don't want to end up like [A7]Bonnie and Clyde.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
[A]After a storm there must be a calm.
catch me in your farm, you [A7]sound your alarm.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
REPEAT WHOLE SONG:
ADD:
[D]poor, poor [E]me, me-[A]Israelite.(x3)

[F]  [G]  [A]                                

I believe that the 2nd line in the last verse should be...'catch me in your PALM, you sound your alarm...' and not FARM...also the 'E' chord should be an 'E7'......
