Brother Can You Spare a Dime  The Weavers

Intro Am E7 E7 E7
[Am]They used to tell me I was bu[Dm6]ilding a dr[E]eam [E7]
A[Am]nd so I followed the m[Dm6]ob.
W[Am]hen there was earth to plow or gun[Dm6]s to bear,
I was al[E]ways there, right on the j[E7]ob...
T[Am]hey used to tell me I was bu[Dm6]ilding a dr[E]eam [E7]
W[Am]ith peace and glory a[Dm6]head
Why sho[Am]uld I be sta[Am/C]nding in li[E]ne, ju[Am]st waiting f[Dm6]or br[E]ead? [Dm6]
[Am]Once I built a railroad, m[E7]ade it [A7]run,
[D]Made it r[G7]ace against [C]time;[E7]
[Dm/F]Once I build a [E7]railroad -- [Am]now it's d[F7]one.
[Dm6]Brother, can you s[E7]pare a d[Am]ime?
[Am]Once I built a tower t[E7]o the [A7]sun,
[D]Brick and[G7] rivet and l[C]ime;[E7]
[Dm/F]Once I build a [E7]tower -- n[Am]ow it's d[F7]one.
[Dm6]Brother, can you s[E7]pare a d[Am]ime?
[A7]Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell,
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-[Gm6]dum;[A7]
H[D7]alf a million boots went sloggin' through Hell --
[Am]I was the kid with the d[F7]rum.[E7]
[Am]Say, don't you remember, they ca[E7]lled me [A7]Al?
[D]It was Al [G7]all the ti[C]me.[E7]
[Dm/F]Say, don't you rem[E7]ember? [Am]I'm your [F7]pal.
[Dm6]Buddy can you sp[E7]are [E7+5] a di[Am]me?
