[Intro]
C7 Ab7 Bb7

[Verse 1]
C7                        F7
Now, if I was a bricklayer,
                          C7
I wouldn't build just any-thing;
F7
And if I was a ball player,
                          C7
I wouldn't play no second string.
       Ab7                       Bb7
And if I were some jew'lry, baby;
                               C7
Lord, I'd have to be a diamond ring.

[Verse 2]
C7                  F7                     C7
If I were a secret, lord, I never would be told.
F7                                                   C7
If I were a jug of wine, then all my flavor would be old.
           Ab7
I could be most anything,
Bb7                                      C7
But it got to be twenty-four karat solid gold, oh.

[Verse 3]
C7
If I were a gambler, you know I'd never lose,
F7
And if I were a guitar player,
                           C7
Lord, I'd have to play the blues.

[Instrumental]
C7 F7 C7 F7 C7 Ab7 Bb7 C7

[Verse 4]
C7                  F7                      C7
If I was a hacksaw, my blade would be razor sharp.
F7                                                C7
If I were a politician, I could prove that monkeys talk.
             Ab7
You can find the tallest building,
Bb7                            C7
Lord, I'd have me the house on top.
C7
Oh, let's go! 

[Instrumental]
C7 F7 C7 F7 C7 Ab7 Bb7 C7

[Verse 5]
C7
I'm the penthouse pauper;
F7                  C7
I got nothin' to my name.
F7
I'm the penthouse pauper; baby,
                    C7
I got nothing to my name.
         Ab7
I can be most anything,
Bb7                                      C7
'cause when you got nothin' it's all the same.
C7
Oh, let's move to this song!

[Outro]
C7 F7 C7 F7 C7 Ab7 Bb7 C7
F7                        C7
Lord, look at my penthouse.
