[Verse 1]
Em
Crazy little child
C
Never got to see
Em                        B
All the pretty things in life
 B7
Had him put away
Em
Nothing they could say
       C                    B
Could ever make the pieces fit
          Em
Aw well, Daddy-o was rich
C
Mama was a bitch
Em                     B
Living wasn't easy in between
B7
Behind his silent scream
Em
Jackson, in his teens
     C        B     Em           
Was planning his escape

[Chorus]
           G
He was a crazy little child
     D
New Orleans Alley playground
D7
Grimy faced
 D7                     Em
He watched the hookers cry
 G                          D    
Winos were his friends and when he talked to them
             D7                                  B
They said, "Jackson, boy, they'll get you by and by"

[Verse 2]
Em
Depression settin' in
C
Desp'rate, cool and quick
Em                                     B
Jackson learned the ropes out on the street
 B7
Little candy stores
 Em 
Just pickin' locks and doors
     C               B            Em
Was practice for a two bit petty thief
    Em
So Jackson went to Ritz
     C
And ev'ryone was hip
Em                                 B
Ritz ran all the rackets there in town
        B7
If you need another boy
    Em
A trigger or a blade
Em     C                    B
Well, I'm the slickest cat around
       Em
Yeah, Ritz gave him the eye
      C
Once over, then he smiled
 Em                                B
"Yeah, I've got something here in mind
        B7
If you meet me here at two
    Em
I think you'll like the view
               C              B                 Em
Of that long green when you crack that safe tonight"

[Chorus]
           G
He was a crazy little child
     D
New Orleans Alley playground
D7
Grimy faced
 D7                     Em
He watched the hookers cry
 G                          D    
Winos were his friends and when he talked to them
             D7                                  B
They said, "Jackson, boy, they'll get you by and by" that's right

[Verse 3]
Em
Well, I'll wait for you outside
                  C
And I'll be your ears and your eyes
          Em                                            B
And boy, you just slip in there and bring out all that loot
              B7
But Ritz was taken by surprise
           Em
Couple of unspected guys
           C          B      Em
And they left poor Jackson inside

[Instrumental solo]

Em Em Em  C  C  C   Em Em Em  B B B

B7 B7 B7  Em Em Em  C  C  C   B B B

Em Em Em  C  C  C   Em Em Em  B B B

B7 B7 B7  Em Em Em  C  C  C   B B B


[Verse 4]
 Em
Questions there were few
    C
In fact there were none
 Em                                    B
When those Sheriff's bullets start to fly
         B7
He lay dying on the floor
         Em
With a smokin' forty-four
             C              B          Em
He said, "I must admit the winos were right"

Em
Crazy little child
 C
Never got to see
 Em                       B
All the pretty things in life
     B7
We buried him today
  Em
Nothing we could say
       C                    B
Could ever make the pieces fit
         C              B          Em
Yeah, I must admit the winos were right
       C               B          Em
Oh, I must admit the winos were right
           C
His last words were
                    B           B    B C Em
I must admit the winos we-ere ri-ight
