Living For The City

  E F# G F#  
   A boy is born    in  hard time Missis- sippi  
  E F# G F#  
   Surrounded by  four  walls that ain't so  pretty  
  E F# G F#  
   His parents give  him  love and af- fection  
  E F# G F#  
   To keep him strong  moving  in the right di- rection  

Chorus 1:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough,  just enough for the  city ... ee  ha!  

Verse 2:  

  E F# G F#  
   His father works  some  days for fourteen  hours  
  E F# G F#  
   And you can bet  he  barely makes a  dollar  
  E F# G F#  
   His mother goes  to  scrub the floors for  many  
  E F# G F#  
   And you'd best believe  she  hardly gets a  penny  

Chorus 2:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough,  just enough for the  city ... ee  ha!  

Middle 8:  

  E E7 A7  
   Da ba da  da, da da da  da  
  Da da da da da  

Verse 3:  

  E F# G F#  
   His sister's blac k but  she is sho'nuff  pretty  
  E F# G F#  
   Her skirt is shor t but  Lord her legs are  sturdy  
  E F# G F#  
   To walk to schoo l she's  got to get up  early  
  E F# G F#  
   Her clothes are o ld but  never are they  dirty  

Chorus 3:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough,  just enough for the  city ... um  hum  

Verse 4:  

  E F# G F#  
   Her brother's smar t he's  got more sense than  many  
  E F# G F#  
   His patience's lon g but  soon he won't have  any  
  E F# G F#  
   To find a job  is  like a haystack  needle  
  E F# G F#  
   Cause where he liv es they  don't use colored p eople  

Chorus 4:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough,  just enough for the  city ...        

Middle 8 (2):  

  E E7 A7  
   Da ba da  da, da da da  da  
  Da da da da da  

Coda:  

  E F# G F#  
   Living  just e- nough...For the  city... yeah  
  E F# G F#  
   Living  just e- nough...For the  city...  


(Repeat several Times)  

Verse 5:  

  E F# G F#  
   His hair is long , his  feet are hard and  gritty  
  E F# G F#  
   He spends his life  walking the  streets of New York  City  
  E F# G F#  
   He's almost dead  from  breathing in air pol- lution  
  E F# G F#  
   He tried to vote  but to  him there's no so- lution  

Chorus 5:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough, just e nough for the  city ...        
yeah, yeah, yeah!  

Verse 6:  

  E F# G F#  
   I hope you hear  in- side my voice of  sorrow  
  E F# G F#  
   And that it motivates  you to  make a better to morrow  
  E F# G F#  
   This place is crue l no  where could be much  colder  
  E F# G F#  
   If we don't change  the  world will soon be  over  

Chorus 6:  

  A B E F# G F#  
Living  just enough, stop giving  just enough for the  city!!!!            

Middle 8 (3):  

  E E7 A7  
   Da ba da  da, da da da  da  
  Da da da da da
