Except for 'Secret Agent Man', every one of Johnny Rivers' hit singles
up to this point had been a remake of an oldie.  This (one of the few
A-sides he ever wrote) became his only #1 single on 11/12/66.

                          "Poor Side Of Town"
                      (Johnny Rivers - Lou Adler)


	Emaj7                     F#m7
	Doo-do-do-do-wah, shoobee-doobee
	Emaj7                     F#m7
	Doo-do-do-do-wah, shoobee-doobee

Verse 1:

	Emaj7                             F#m7
	How can you tell me  how much you miss me
	Emaj7                        F#m7
	When the last time I saw you      you wouldn't even kiss me
	A                      G#m7
	That rich guy you been seein'
	F#m7               A
	Must have put you down
	    E                  A
	So welcome back, baby
	To the poor side of town

	guitar [2X; played at end of each verse]:

	(E) [N.C.]
	 v     v     v     v

Verse 2:

	To him you were nothing but a little plaything (little plaything,
	Not much more  than an overnight fling (overnight fling, doo-wah)
	To me you were the greatest thing
	This boy had ever found
	And girl, it's hard to find nice things
	On the poor side of town


	D                     Gmaj7
	I can't blame you for tryin'
	C              Bm
	I'm tryin' to make it too
	C                    Bm
	I've got one little hangup, baby
	Am                        G                     B              (Emaj7)
	I just can't make it without you (without you, ooh, without you, aah)

Verse 3:

	So tell me, are you gonna stay now (gonna stay now, doo-wah)
	Will you stand by me  all the way now (all the way now, doo-wah)
	With you by my side
	They can't keep us down
	Together we can make it, baby
	From the poor side of town

Verse 4 [first two lines sung by background singers]:

	So tell me how much you love me
	Come near to me and say you need me now
	Oh, with you by my side
	This world can't keep us down
	Together we can make it, baby
	From the poor side of town

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	Emaj7                     F#m7
	Doo-do-do-do-wah, shoobee-doobee
