Intro

C F Em Am F C Am F C G C

CI wanna sing you a song about Vegas town and pFoor old Howard Hughes EmLocked up there in his Amhotel suite tFrying to find his sChoes WAmell he’s got so much toF lose COld Howard HuGghes and all his blCues CHis Nurses and his chauffeurs they sFtand around and sigh EmWatch the door and Amwait on him whaFtever’s on his miCnd AnAmd that’s a hell of a lot Fto do CTo guard old Howard HuGghes and all his bClues

Chorus

CAnd if he didn’t have a nickel FIf he didn’t have a dime EmHe could do whatever he Amdamn well please FHe could do it all the tCime EmBut success is just a Ammess of overdue nFews (?) CFor old Howard HugGhes and all his blCues CHe’s always in the papers he’s alFways on the news EmBut no one knows whose HughAes are Who (?) Or Feven what’s the trCuth Amor who is getting screwFed and it’s tChem and you know Gwho and all his bClues CWay down yonder on the Vegas strip where the reFgular people pass EmI heard some say he’s not tooAm well FI heard he’s sinking fCast AmBut those are unofficial sourFces to the news CAbout poor old Howard HuGghes and all his bClues

Chorus

CAnd if he didn’t have a nickel FIf he didn’t have a dime EmHe could do whatever he Amdamn well please FHe could do it all the tCime EmBut success is just a Ammess of overdue neFws (?) CFor old Howard HuGghes and all his blCues CNow a bunch folks are writtin’ books about him FAnd some of them are awful long EmI didn’t really have that Ammuch time so I thFought I’d just write this sCong AmGotta get me in a few licks tFoo CAbout old Howard HuGghes and all his bClues

Chorus

CAnd if he didn’t have a nickel FIf he didn’t have a dime EmHe could do whatever he Amdamn well please FHe could do it all the tCime EmBut success is just a Ammess of overdue neFws (?) CFor old Howard HuGghes and all his bClues
