Love of the Common People  Waylon Jennings


**************** LOVE OF THE COMMON PEOPLE ******************
written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins
performed by Waylon Jennings.
Verse 1:
L[F]iving on free food tickets
Water in the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the r[Eb]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[Eb]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
