Israelite

Desmond Dekker

 A
 Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, Sir,
 A7
so that every mouth can be fed.
 DEAFG
 poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

 A
 My wife and my kids, them pack up and-a leave me.
 A7
Darling, she said "I was yours to be seen"
 DEACD
 poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

 A
 Shirt them a tear up, trousers a go.
 A7
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde.
 DEACD
 poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

 A
 After a storm there must be a calm.
 A7
catch me in your farm, you sound your alarm.
 DEACD
 poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

REPEAT WHOLE SONG:
ADD:
 DEA
 poor, poor me, me-Israelite.(x3)

 FGA
                                     

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'......
