Chords by Alfredo Alex G. General

Intro: C-G-Am-F-C-G-G7-C-G

           C            G
Well outta Southern Illinois
       Am                F
Come a down-home country boy
           C                   
He’s gonna make it in the city
        G                 F-C-G
Playin’ guitar in the studio
            C                    G
Oh well, he hadn’t been there an hour
        Am             F
When he met a Broadway flow’r
             C                         
You know she took him for his money
        G                     F   C-G
And she left him in a cheap hotel
              C               G
Oh well, it’s easy for you to see
          Am             F  
That that country boy is me   
        C                            G                      F    C-G
Say and how’m I gonna ever break the news to the folks back home?
            C                G
Well, I was gonna be a great success
            Am           F  C
Things sure ended up a mess
                   G               F  C-G
But in the process I got messed up to

Refrain: 
       C                     F        G
Hello, mama and dad I had to call collect
        C           Em       Am   Am/G
Cause I ain’t got a cent to my name
          C                   F
Well, I’m sleepin’ in a hotel doorway
       D                        G
And tonight they say it’s gonna rain
             C      Em         Am    Am/G
And if you’d only send me some money
           C      Em    Am    Am/G 
I’ll be back on my feet again
C          Em           Am      Am/G                           
Send it in care of the Sunday Mission
F          C    C-Em-Am-Am/G-F-G6-C
Box Number Ten

              C            G
Well, back in Southern Illinois
               Am                  F   C
They’re still worryin” ‘bout their boy
                     G                       F   C-G         
But this boy’s goin’ home soon’s he gets the fare
           C                G
Because as soon as I got my bread
        Am             F
I got a pipe upside my head
              C               
You know they took me in an alley
        G                   F   C-G
Took my money and my guitar too

Repeat refrain

End chords: CEmAm - Am/GFG - C
