Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Love Of The Common People  Waylon Jennings

        L[F]iving on free food tickets
Water in the milk from the hole in the roof
        Where the r[D#]ain came through
        What can you [Bb]do? hmm h[C/G]mm
Verse 2:
        T[F]ears from little sister
Crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress
        Without a patch for the p[D#]arty to go
        Oh but you kn[Bb]ow,she'll get [C/G]by
    [C/G]    She is l[F]iving in the love of the c[Bb]ommon peop[F]le
        Smiles from the heart of a f[Bb]amily [C/G]man
        D[F]addy's gonna buy her a dr[Bb]eam to cl[F]ing to
        Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she [C/G]can,as she c[F]an
Verse 3: (a tone higher)
        It's a g[G]ood thing you don't have bus fare
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
        And you'd lose it in the sn[F]ow on the ground
        A walkin' to t[C/G]own to find a j[D]ob
Verse 4:
        Tr[G]ying to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
        And the ch[F]ills to the bone
        Oh,you better go h[C/G]ome where it's w[D]arm
Chorus bis:
    [D]    Where you can l[G]ive in the love of the [C/G]common peo[G]ple
        Smiles from the heart of a f[C/G]amily m[D]an
        D[G]addy's gonna buy you a d[C/G]ream to cl[G]ing to
        Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she c[D]an,as she c[G]an
Verse 5: (a tone higher)
        L[A]iving on dreams ain't easy
But the closer the knit,the tighter the fit
        And the ch[G]ills stay away
        You take them in str[D]ide,family pr[E]ide
Verse 6:
        You know that fa[A]ith is your foundation
And with whole lotta love and a warm conversation
        And pl[G]enty of prayer
        Making you str[D]ong,where you bel[E]ong
Chorus ter:
    [E]    Where you can l[A]ive in the love of the c[D]ommon peo[A]ple
        Be the pride in the heart of a f[D]amily m[E]an
        D[A]addy's gonna buy you a dr[D]eam to cl[A]ing to
        Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she c[E]an,as she c[A]an
