Homeless

J J Cale

 CG
 She said she had no money But he was in doubt     
 Am
 He told her, "I used to be in too"
 Em
But now he was out
 F
 "Spare some small change lady
 GAm
 And I'll be on my way"          

 CG
 She looked into his eyes And deep in his soul   
 Am
 I know she was wondering
 Em
If he was in control
 FG
She muttered to herself, "Those beggars,           
 Am
Where do they all come from?"       

 AmCG
 He said, "I'm not a homeless man               
 FEm
I'm a gypsy by trade     
 Am
And I'm travelling this land
 GAm
I'm not a homeless man"                         

 CG
 He moved through the streets  With his headband low            
 Am
Never thinking he would never see
 Em
That woman again, you know
 F
 Just sleeping in the doorways
 GAm
And alleys like he always had             
 CG
 The years rolled by And later on    
 AmEm
He spotted an old woman All tattered and worn  

 F
Hard times had got her
 GAm
Her clothes were ragged and old                 
 CG
She said, "I'm not a homeless woman                
 FEmAm
I'm a gypsy by trade  And I'm travelling this land
 GAm
I'm not a homeless woman"                       

 CG
 Sometime in the daytime Sometimes at night  

 AmEm
You will see a couple walking They'll come into sight      
 FG
 Pushing their carts           
 Am
And holding hands     

 CG
 If you ask to help They'll just run away 
 AmEm
 Like little children, out to play
 FG
 And if you ask, "Who are you"                
 Am
They'll always say        

 CG
 "I'm not a homeless man               
 FEm
I'm a gypsy by trade             
 Am
And I'm travelling this land

 G
She's not a homeless woman
 Am
I'm not a homeless man"
