Little Man  Alan Jackson

Capo I
Intro: C, F
Verse 1
[C]remember walk'in round the co[G]urt square sidewalk
[F]Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want
[C]There's johnson's hardware and mor[G]gans jewelry
And the ol' L[F]ee king's and the pots they carried
[C]They were the little man[F]
[C]The little man[F]
Verse 2
[C]I go back now and the sto[G]res are all empty
[F]Except for an old coke sign from 1950
[C]Boarded up like they ne[G]ver existed
[F]Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the lit[C]tle man[F]
There goes the lit[C]tle man
Now the co[Am]urt square's just a s[F]et of streets
That the pe[C]ople go round but they sel[G]dom think
Bout the lit[Am]tle man that bu[F]ilt this town
[C]Before the big money sh[G]ut em down
And killed the lit[C]tle man[F]
Oh the lit[C]tle man
Same all the way through
Verse 3
He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
And one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
The new stores came where you do it yourself
You buy a lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget about the little man
Forget about that little man
Verse 4
He hung on there for a few more years
But he couldn't sell slurpees
And he wouldn't sell beer
Now the bank rents the station
To a man down the road
And they sell velvet Elvis and
Second-hand clothes
There goes little man
There goes another little man
Chorus then lead
Verse 5
Now the are lined up in a concrete strip
You can buy the world with just one trip
And save a penny cause it's jumbo size
They don't even realize
They'er killin' the little man
Oh the little man
Verse 6
It wasn't long when I was a child
An old black man came with his plow
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
Back before we'd all forgot about the little man
The little man
Long live the little man
God bless the little man
