Poor, Poor Pitiful Me
By Warren Zevon

Linda Ronstadt version

The riff just repeats, very simple:

Riff: F# C# G# C# / F# C# G# C#

Well I lay my head on the railroad tracks
Waiting on the double E
But the train don't run by here no more
Poor, poor pitiful me

Chorus 
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#          C#           G#      C#
Oh these boys won't let me be
F#                G#
Lord have mercy on me 
G#
Woe is me

(4 bar solo)

Well I met a man out in Hollywood
Now I ain't namin' names
Well he really worked me over good
Just like Jesse James 
Yes he really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender
Put me through some changes, lord
Sort of like a Waring blender

Chorus 
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#          C#           G#      C#
Oh these boys won't let me be
F#                G#
Lord have mercy on me 
G#
Woe is me



Solo (8 bars)


Well I met a boy in Vieux Carres
Down in Yokohama
He picked me up and threw me down
He said “please don’t hurt me mama”


Chorus 
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#     C#    G#       C#
Poor, poor, pitiful me
F#          C#           G#      C#
Oh these boys won't let me be
F#                G#
Lord have mercy on me 
G#
Woe is me


Poor, poor, poor me, poor poor pitiful me (repeat solo out)
