Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


The Little Man  Alan Jackson

[C]I remember walkin' round the court square [G]sidewalks
L[F]ookin' in windows at things I couldn't  want
[C]There's Johnson's Hardware and Morman's Jewelr[G]y
[F]And the old Lee Kings  apothacary
They were the little m[C]an      The l[F]ittle man [C]             [F]

[C]I go back now the stores a[G]re empty
[F]except and old coke sign dated 1950
[C]Boarded up like they never exi[G]sted
or r[F]enovated and called historic districts
There goes the little m[C]an        the[F]re goes the little man      [C]             [F]

Chorus:
Now the court [Am]square's  just a set of stre[F]ets
[C]that people go round but the seldom think[G]
bout' the littl[Am]e man  that built [F]this town
bef[C]ore the big money shut um' [G]down
and killed the little[C] man     ah,[F] the little man [C]           [F]

[C]He pumped your gas and he'd clean your glass  [G]
[F]One cold rainy night he fixed your flat
[C]The new store came where you do it yourself  [G]
You buy lotto [F]ticket and food off the shelf
forget the litt[C]le man      f[F]orget about that little man [C]

[C]He hung on there for a few more y[G]ears
[F]but he couldn't sell slurpies and he wouldn't sell beer
[C]Now the bank rents the station to a man down the ro[G]ad
an[F]d they sell velvet Elvis  and  2nd hand clothes
[F]there goes the little man    there goes another little man
Repeat Chorus:
[C]Now store's lined up in a concrete [G]strip
[F]You buy the whole world in just one trip
[C]You save a penny cause it's jumbo size   [G]
[F]and they don't ever realize
their killin' the litt[C]le man     [F]    ah, the little [C]man    [F]

Repeat Chorus:

[C]It wasn't long ago when I was a ch[G]ild
[F]an old black man came with his mule and his plow
[C]He broke the ground where we grew our garden [G]
[F]back before we'd all forgotten
about[F] the little man      the little man     long live the little man
God Bless the little ma[C]n
