LOVE OF THE COMMON PEOPLE (Hurley & Wilkins)
--------------------------------------------
[Indigo Girls' version is in B, and they play it in A with a capo on the
 second fret.  It also sounds okay to play it in G (capo 4).]
[I'm not sure about the chords in the intro; I'm thinking it might be:
 x0222x(A)  x02225(A)  x02220(A)  xx0454(E) - xx0232 (D) - x02220 (A)]
 
A      A      A     E - D - A - A
[intro]
 
A                    A
Living on free food tickets
        A                        A
There's water in the milk from a hole in the roof
          G                 G
Where the rain came through
             D     E
What can you do?
           A                        A
You've got tears from your little sister
A                                A
Crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
        G           G
For the party to go
        D                    E
But you know she's gonna get by
 
A                         D
Living in the love of the common people
A                          E
Smiles from the heart of a family man
A                       D
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
A                             E
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can
        A      A      A     E - D - A - A
And she can     [same chords as intro]
 
It's a good thing you don't have bus fare
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it the snow on the ground
You better walk to town and find a job
And you try to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
And it chills you to the bone
You better go home, where it's warm
 
Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can
And she can
 
Living on a dream ain't easy (no)
But the closer the knit, the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
We like to keep them in stride with family pride
Faith is your foundation
A whole lot of love and a warm conversation
But don't forget to pray
It's keeping us strong where we belong
 
Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can
 
[A capella ending:]
Living in the love of the common people
    (If love and faith is your foundation)
Smiles from the heart of a family man
    (Little bit of love and a warm conversation)
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    (Don't forget to pray, it's keeping us strong)
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can
    (Where we belong)
Living in the love of the common people
    (Ohhh, living on a dream ain't easy)
Smiles from the heart of a family man
    (But the closer the knit the tighter the fit)
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    (We like to keep 'em in stride)
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can
    (With family pride)
And she can
    (And she can)
