G                                     D7                  G
There's a whole lot of people looking down their noses at me

                           D7          G
Cause I didn't come from a wealthy family

           C                     G
There were ten of us living in a two room shack

       D7                        G
On the banks of the river by the railroad tracks

   C                  G
We kept chickens in a pen in the back

    D7
And everybody said we were Po' Folks

 
   G                      D7                     G
My daddy was a farmer but all he ever raised was us

                                D7                    G
He dug a forty-foot well struck thirty six gallons of dust

    C                      G
The Salvation Army gave us clothes to wear

  D7                          G
A man from the county came to cut our hair

   C                    G
We lived next door to a millionaire

    D7                    G
But we wasn't nothing but Po' Folks

 
       C                     G
We was Po' Folks living in a rich folks world

   D7                G
We sure was a hungry bunch

       C                     G
If the wolf had ever come to our front door

A7                      D7
He'd a had to brought a picnic lunch

 
   G                          D7                      G
My granddaddy's pension was a dollar and thirty-three cents

                                   D7                  G
That was ten dollars less than the landlord wanted for rent

    C                      G
The landlord's letters got nasty indeed

   D7                  G
He wrote  get out  but Pa couldn't read

    C                    G
And we were too broke to even pay heed

    D7                           G
But that's how it is when you're Po' Folks

 
       C                     G
We was Po' Folks living in a rich folks world

   D7                G
We sure was a hungry bunch

       C                     G
If the wolf had ever come to our front door

A7                      D7
He'd a had to brought a picnic lunch


G                           D7                G
But we had something in our house money can't buy

                           D7                    G
Kept us warm in the winter cool when the sun was high

    C                            G
For whenever we didn't have food enough

        D7                  G
And the howling winds would get pretty rough

   C                              G
We patched the cracks and set the table with love

      D7                             G
Cause that's what you do when you're Po' Folks

 
    D7                    G
And we wasn't nothing but Po' Folks

   D7                 G
My mom and my dad was Po' Folks

   D7                        G
My brother and my sister was Po' Folks 

   D7                 G
My dog and my cat was Po' Folks

    D7                     G
And even the Po' Folks was Po' Folks
