1st fret
Little Man, Alan Jackson

Capo I
Intro: C, F 

Verse 1
C                            G
remember walk'in round the court square sidewalk
Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want 
C                                 G
There's johnson's hardware and morgans jewelry
And the ol' Lee king's and the pots they carried
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
Except for an old coke sign from 1950
C                      G
Boarded up like they never existed
Or renovated and called historic districts
                  C            F
There goes the little man
There goes the little man

          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
Oh the little man

Same all the way through

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

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

Chorus then lead

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


Verse 6
It wasn't long when I was a child
An old black man came with his plow
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
Back before we'd all forgot about the little man
The little man
Long live the little man 
God bless the little man

Pretty easy song basic chords Enjoy!!!

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