Little Man, Alan Jackson

Capo I
Intro: C, F (x2)


Verse 1
    C                        G
I remember walk'in round the court square sidewalk
F
Lookin' in windows at things I could want 
C                                 G
   There's Johnson's hardware and Morgan's jewelry
        F
And the ol' Lee King's apothecary
              C            F
They were the little man
    C            F
The little man


Verse 2
C                        G
   I go back now and the stores are all empty
  F
Except for an old coke sign dated 1950
C                       G
   Boarded up like they never existed
F
   Or renovated and called historic districts
               C            F
There goes the little man
               C
There goes the little man


Chorus:
        Am                    F 
Now the court square's just a   set of streets
         C                     G
That the people go round but they seldom think
         Am              F
Bout the little man that built this town
  C                  G 
Before the big money shut em down
               C            F
And killed the little man
       C
Oh the little man


Verse 3
C                          G
   He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
    F
And one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
C                                G
   The new stores came where you do it yourself
          F
You buy a   lotto ticket and food off the shelf
                 C            F
Forget about the little man
                  C
Forget about that little man


Verse 4
C                         G
   He hung on there for a few more years
       F
But he couldn't sell slurpees, and he wouldn't sell beer
        C
Now the bank rents the station
     G
To a man down the road
          F
And they sell velvet Elvis and second-hand clothes
               C            F
There goes the little man
                   C
There goes another little man


CHORUS


Verse 5
        C                        G
Now the stores are lined up in a concrete strip
        F
You can buy the world with just one trip
C                              G
   And save a penny cause it's jumbo size
    F
And they don't even realize
                    C            F
They're killin' the little man
       C
Oh the little man


CHORUS


Verse 6
C                      G
   It wasn't long when I was a child
   F
An old black man came with his plow
C                               G
   He broke the ground where we grew our garden
F 
Back before we'd all forgot 
          C            F
About the little man
    C            F
The little man
              C            F
Long live the little man 
              C            (hold to fade, or strum increasingly slower a few times, then hold)
God bless the little man

Lack of formatting. you need to put chords through all the verses and chorus so thats what i think so there and stuff
