Little Man  Alan Jackson

Little Man
Alan Jackson
Guitar: Riff
Intro: C/F/C/F
I [C]remember walk'in round the [G]court square sidewalk
[F]Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want
[C]There's johnson's hardware and [G]morgans jewelry
And the [F]ol' Lee king's apothecary
They ware the [C]little man[F]
The [C]little man
Verse:II 'Same chords as the first'
I go back now and the stores are all empty
Except for an old coke sign from 1950
Boarded up like they never existed
Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the little man
There goes the little man
Chorus:
Now the [Am]court square's just a [F]set of streets
That the [C]people go round but [G]they seldom think
Bout the [Am]little man that [F]built this town
[C]Before the big money [G]shut em down
And killed the [C]little man[F]
Oh the [C]little man[F]
Verse: III
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:IV
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 down the road
And sell velvet Elvis and
Second-hand clothes
There goes little man
There goes another little man
Chorus: Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C/F/C
Violin solo: / Guitar Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C
Verse: V =
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
Chorus: Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C/F/C/F
Verse: VI 'Slow strum'
[C]It wasn't long when [G]I was a child
An [F]old black man came with his plow
[C]He broke the ground where we [G]grew our garden
F NC
Back before we'd all forgot
about the [C]little man[F]
The [C]little man[F]
Long live the [C]little man [F]
NC slow strum: C
God bless the little man
