D*G Explanation - start with (000235) then bring the pinkie down one fret each time (000234, 000233) until you get to a regular D (000232). Make sense? Listen to the album for more detail. Intro [

D

D*] [D*] you know you've done enough when every bone is sore [D*] you know you've prayed enough when you don't ask any more [D*] you know you're coming to some kind of understanding [D*] when every dream you've dreamed has passed and you're still standing G mama says A god tends Bm to every little skinny sheep A G so count your ribs A and say your D prayers and get to sleep G nothing is A louder to god's Bm ears than a poor mans sorrow A G daddy is poor today and A he will be poor tomorrow [G A] A hey that's the G poor man's D house A everybody get a G look at the poor mans D house A everywhere they G went before must have D turned them out A and now they're G living in a poor mans D house [

D

D*] [D*] there's nothing like poverty to get you into heaven [D*] they got a lot of wine and fish up there and the bread's unleavened [D*] they got a lot of ears that heard a whip go crack [D*] lots of missing toes and fingers and scars upon their backs G daddy's been A working too much for Bm days and days he doesn't eat

A

G he never A says much but i D think this time it's got him beat G it isn't that A he isn't Bm strong or kind or clever A G your daddy's poor today and he will be A poor forever [G A] A hey that's the G poor man's D house A those kids are G living in a poor mans D house Athey walk to G school with the soles of their D shoes worn out A and come home in the G evening to the poor mans D house G what are you chopping that wood for A why are you growing that corn G mama's sewing a brand new shirt and A you're wearing the one that's torn Gi guess it's for some one elses kid A who wasn't born in a poor D man's G house a poor D man's G house A hey take a G look at that D house A everybody we're G living in a poor mans D house A seems like everyGwhere we go they D find us out A find out that we've been G living in a poor mans D house
