Gypsies tramps and thieves

Cher



 AmC
                         I was born in the wagon of a traveling show
 DmF
        My mama used to dance for the money they'd throw
 CEmAm
        Papa'd do whatever he could
 DmF
        Preach a little gospel 
 GC
        Sell a couple bottles of Dr. Good
Chorus:
 Fmaj7CFmaj7C
        Gypsies, tramps and thieves
 Fmaj7CFmaj7C
        We'd hear it from the people of the town, they'd call us
 Fmaj7CFmaj7C
        Gypsies, tramps and thieves
 AmGF
        But every night all the men would come around
(1,3: Am 2: Dm C Dm C; to bridge)
And lay their money down
Verse 2:
Picked up a boy this side of Mobile
Gave him a ride, fed him with a hot meal
I was 16, he was 21
Rode with us to Memphis
And Papa would have shot him if he knew what he'd done
(chorus)
Bridge:
 DmCDmC
        Never had schoolin' but he taught me well
 DmCDmC
        With his smooth Southern style 
 DmCDmC
        Three months later I'm a gal in trouble
 DmCFmaj7
        And I haven't seen him for a while
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
        I haven't seen him for a while 
Verse 3:
She was born in the wagon of a traveling show
Her mama used to dance for the money they'd throw
Grandpa'd do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel
Sell a couple bottles of Dr. Good
(repeat chorus to fade)
-- another ace 70's tab from Andrew Rogers
