Raised On Robbery  Joni Mitchell

[F]let me sit down, you know,
drinkiní aloneís a sh[C]ame,
itís a shame, itís a cryiní shame
[G]look at those jokers glued[F] to that damn hockey [C]game

[F]hey, honey, you got lots of cash,
bring us Ďround a bottle and weíll have some laughs
[Bb]ginís what iím drinkiní; i was [G]raised on robbe[C]ry

she says,
iím a [F]pretty good cook, sittiní on my groceries [C]
come up[G] to my kitchen, iíll show[F] you my best reci[C]pes
i [F]try and i try, but i canít save a cent
iím up after midnight cookiní tryiní to make my rent
iím [Bb]rough but Iím pleasiní; i was [G]raised on robbe[C]ry

we [F]had a little money once,
they were pushiní through a four lane hig[C]hway
government gave us [G]three thousand dollars,
you [F]shoulda seen it fly away [C]

first he bought a [F]fifty-seven Biscayne, he put it in the ditch
he drunk up all the rest, that son of a bitch
his [Bb]bloodís bad whiskey; i was [G]raised on robbe[C]ry

you know you [F]ainít bad lookiní,
i like the way you hold your [C]drinks
come [G]home with me honey,
i ainít [F]askiní for no full-length mink [C]

[F]        hey, where you goiní?
donít go yet, your glass ainít empty and we just met
youíre [Bb]mean when youíre loaded;
i was [G]raised on robbe[C]ry
