Performed by Humble Pie
C,G,D,A,E x 2
C G D
I wanted to see the town before the town saw me
So I came in through the back door.
C G D
Counted all the dealers that lived illegally
And it sure made my hand saw.
I aint shy in waiting for a fool to show his purse
A slicker dressed in leather.
So all you evil people I dedicate my verse
May you all rot together.
Well you know that I aint backward
When it comes to being took
But I sure had my share.
Now it don’t take me long to read a con-man like a book
Cause those eyes have that cold stare
They got no soul no self control
When money comes to hand
Living like a meeker.
So now you better watch out for yourself
Cause if it works out like they planned
They’ll leave you in the dirt to sleep on.
That’s it really, straight up chords. There’s lots of nice slide
and pedal steel in there but someone else can work that out.
Another cool song by the ‘Pie”.
