Little Man

C Alan Jackson Db Vote rhythm
Capo 1
Verse 1
I re[C]remember walk'in round the [G]court square sidewalk
[F]Lookin' in windows at things I could want
[C] There's Johnson's hardware and [G]Morgan's jewelry
And the [F]ol' Lee King's apothecary
They were the [C]little man [F]
The [C]little man [F]
Verse 2
[C] I go back now and the [G]stores are all empty
Ex[F]Except for an old coke sign dated 1950
[C] Boarded up like they [G]never existed
[F] Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the [C]little man [F]
There goes the [C]little man
Now the [Am]court square's just a [F] set of streets
That the [C]people go round but th[G]they seldom think
Bout the [Am]little man that [F]built this town
Be[C]Before the big money [G]shut em down
And killed the [C]little man [F]
Oh the [C]little man
Verse 3
[C] He pumped your gas and h[G]he cleaned your glass
And [F]one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
[C] The new stores came where you [G]do it yourself
You buy a [F] lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget about the [C]little man [F]
Forget about that [C]little man
Verse 4
[C] He hung on there for a [G]few more years
But he [F]couldn't sell slurpees, and he wouldn't sell beer
Now the [C]bank rents the station
To a [G]man down the road
And they s[F]sell velvet Elvis and second-hand clothes
There goes the [C]little man [F]
There goes another [C]little man
Verse 5
Now the [C]stores are lined up in a [G]concrete strip
You can [F]buy the world with just one trip
[C] And save a penny cause it's [G]jumbo size
And [F]they don't even realize
They're killin' the [C]little man [F]
Oh the [C]little man
Verse 6
[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]Back before we'd all forgot
About the [C]little man [F]
The [C]little man [F]
Long live the [C]little man [F]
God bless the [C]little man
