Gypsies tramps and thieves  Cher

                         I was b[Am]orn in the wagon of a t[C]raveling show
        My m[Dm]ama used to dance for the m[F]oney they'd throw
        P[C]apa'd do whate[Em]ver he c[Am]ould
        P[Dm]reach a little gospel[F]
        S[G]ell a couple bottles of Dr. G[C]ood
        [Fmaj7]Gypsie[C]s, t[Fmaj7]ramps and thi[C]eves
        We'd[Fmaj7] hear it from the p[C]eople of the[Fmaj7] town, they'd c[C]all us
        [Fmaj7]Gypsie[C]s, t[Fmaj7]ramps and thi[C]eves
        [Am]But every night all the m[G]en would come aro[F]und
(1,3: Am 2: Dm C Dm C; to bridge)
And lay their money down
Verse 2:
Picked up a boy this side of Mobile
Gave him a ride, fed him with a hot meal
I was 16, he was 21
Rode with us to Memphis
And Papa would have shot him if he knew what he'd done
        [Dm]Never had s[C]choolin' but he t[Dm]aught me w[C]ell
        With his s[Dm]mooth So[C]uthern s[Dm]tyle[C]
        T[Dm]hree months la[C]ter I'm a [Dm]gal in tr[C]ouble
        And I [Dm]haven't seen h[C]im for a [Fmaj7]while
        I haven't seen him for a [Cmaj7]while[Fmaj7]
Verse 3:
She was born in the wagon of a traveling show
Her mama used to dance for the money they'd throw
Grandpa'd do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel
Sell a couple bottles of Dr. Good
(repeat chorus to fade)
-- another ace 70's tab from Andrew Rogers
