Poor Side Of Town

Johnny Rivers

INTRO:
 Emaj7F#m7
 Doo..do..do..do..wah.....shoo..bee..doo..bee.
 Emaj7
 Doo..do..do..do..wah.....shoo..bee..[F#m7doo..bee.

 Emaj7F#m7
 How can you tell me how much you miss me,
 Emaj7F#m7
 when the last time I saw you, you wouldn't even kiss me?
 AG#mF#mA
 That rich guy you been seein', must have put you down,
 EAE
so welcome back, baby, to the poor side of town.

 Emaj7F#m7
 To him you were nothing but a little plaything,
 Emaj7F#m7
 not much more than, an overnight fling.
 AG#mF#mA
 To me you were the greatest thing..this boy had ever found,
 EA
and girl, it's hard to find nice things..on the poor side of
 E
 town.
CHORUS:
 DGCBm
 I can't blame you for tryin', I'm tryin' to make it, too..
 CBmAm
 I've got one little hangup, baby, I just can't make it
 GBB7
without you.

 Emaj7F#m7
 So tell me, are you gonna stay now?
 Emaj7F#m7
 Will you stand by me, all the way now?
 AG#mF#mA
 With you by my side, they can't keep us down,
 EAE
together we can make it, baby, from the poor side of town.

 Emaj7F#m7
 So tell me how much you love me,
 Emaj7F#m7
 come near to me and say you need me now.
 AG#mF#mA
Oh, with you by my side..this world can't keep us down,
 EAE
together we can make it, baby..from the poor side of town.

CHORUS:
REPEAT#4.

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.

To 'pretty up' the song, the 1st and 3rd lyric line of each verse should be played with a Emaj7 rather than just the E major chord.
