Topic: Gutter

Been visiting  a  few big cities of late  ,Here's  a  song for  the  homeless ,its  getting worse  in the  UK  daily.

Gutter

Am
When a man  lies  down in the  gutter
Dm
and  hes  tryin to  get  some  rest
Am
and  he  aint  got  no  religion
Dm
or  warm clothes on his  chest
C                                                     G
and  the  cold rain  beats your window
Am
but  your slippers  warm  yor  feet
Am
Just  remember  somones  dyin
            C                 G         Am             
on the  cold  stone  in the  street



Am
And youve got too many  T shirts
Dm
that your never gonna wear
Am
and the  golden roadto  paradise
Dm
you walk with  out  a  care 
C                                                           G
you pay  your  bills  with  your apple  watch 
Am
because you think its cool
Am
and you've  just bought a cup  of  coffee
            C                 G               Am             
and  the  man thinks  you're a fool



Am
Do you  ever  stop  to think about
Dm
the people at  your  side
Am
as you ride the subway  daily 
Dm
to  the  place  where  you  reside
C                                                   G
you eat  from Marks and Spencer


Am
not some dust bin in the street
Am
and you  never  give a single thought
            C                 G         Am             
to  the  people  that  you meet 

Am
all  they  want  is  a  chance  to  live
Dm
a life  like  you and  me
Am
but  situations  get  dealt like cards
Dm
the future we cant see
C                                                   G
so next time  as you  pass some one
Am
who's lyin in the  street
Am
spare  a  thought and  spare  some  change
            C                 G         Am             
and  help  them find  their feet

Re: Gutter

Hey Graham - We see our fair share of homeless here in the US too. We're also seeing the homeless posers who stalk the places where they get the most handouts looking for sympathetic people with deep pockets.

Re: Gutter

hits home hard. some really gritty northern sentiments there, eg: kick you in the goolies and say; " you should learn from that!" this falls neatly into the category of "streets of london" or "another day in paradise" you should be proud my friend.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
