I worked this out from a scratchy tape of a record.  I'm not 
sure of the key -- I could be off by a half step, but it seems to
make sense.   The solo sounded like it was over G instead of over a 
progression, but I didn't spend much time on it.

Commnets, corrections, and additions are welcome.

                  MISTER YOU'RE A BETTER MAN THAN I

verse:
G                    A
Can you judge a man      
       F#
By the way he wears his hair
G                     A
Can you read his mind
       F#
By the clothes that he wears
E             F#
Can you see a bad man
       G              A
By the pattern on his tie

Chorus:
           B                              A
Well then mister you're a better man than I    4x
   (after 4th repeat)
B    A    F#

verse 2:

Could you tell a wise man
By the way he speaks or spells
Is this more important
Than the stories that he tells
And call a man a fool
If for wealth he doesn't strive

Chorus
Solo over G

Verse 3:

You condemn a man
If you faith he doesn't hold
You say the color of his skin
Is the color of his soul
Could you say that men
For king and country all must die?

Chorus
