Keeping Up With The Joneses
Recorded by Corey Smith
Album: Keeping Up With The Joneses (2009)

Intro.:   | (C) (Am) | (F) (G) | x 2

(C) Back in the day, back in the (Am)hills, we were busted, 
made a (F)livin' on the government (G)dime
(C) Mama wouldn't keep her (Am)job, and the alimony (F)check never came on (G)time
(C) We were poor, I wasn't (Am)proud, only angry that our (F)daddy couldn't send us (G)more
(C) Always embarrassed by my (Am)free lunch card, and food (F)stamps for the grocery (G)store

(Chorus)
No keepin' up with the (C)Joneses, no keepin' up with the (F)Joneses
When you're stuck on the (C)bottom, you take what you can (G)get
You say "ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh"

Inst.:   | (C) (Am) | (F) (G) |

(C) I went to school in hand-me-(Am)downs from my cousin, 
baggy (F)britches seemed to suit me (G)well
(C) Kinda thin, kinda (Am)loose in the middle, slouchin' (F)in after the tardy (G)bell
(C) The teacher never called me (Am)trash, but I knew what 
she was (F)thinkin' when she looked at (G)me
(C) Born to be the under-(Am)class, growin' up to make a (F)livin' on our chari-(G)ty

(Chorus)
No keepin' up with the (C)Joneses, no keepin' up with the (F)Joneses
When you're stuck on the (C)bottom, you take what you can (G)get
You say "ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh"

Inst.:   | (Am) | (Am) | (Dm) | (Dm) | (Am) | (Am) 
         | (Dm) | (Dm) | (E) | (E) | (E) | (E) ---

(C) Don't go lookin' down your (Am)nose at me neighbor, I could (F)spot you from a yard a-(G)way
(C) Don't try to judge me by the (Am)clothes I'm wearing or the (F)cars in my drive(G)way
(C) I'm not rich but I'm not (Am)poor any longer, and I'm (F)happy as a man could (G)be
(C) I'm proud to work, I'm proud to (Am)pay my taxes, and I'm (F)grateful for my fami-(G)ly

(Chorus)
No keepin' up with the (C)Joneses, no keepin' up with the (F)Joneses
When you come up from the (C)bottom, you love whatever you (G)got
You say "ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh"

(Tag)
(C) No, no, no, no, (Am) no, no, no, no, no, (F) no, no, no, no, no
(G) No keepin' up with the (C)Joneses, (Am) no, no, no, 
(F) no, no, no, (G) no, no, (C)no
Ain't nothin', ain't (Am)no one, gonna hold me (F)down, ain't nothin', 
ain't (G)no one, gonna hold me (C)down
Ain't nothin', ain't (Am)no one, gonna hold me (F)down, no, no, no, no, no, 
(G) oh, (C)oh (Am) (F) --- to fade
