Intro: Em C D Em x4

Em                  C
Government man keep calling my house
D                    Em
talking ‘bout i owe, harassing my spouse.
Em                     C
Gotta park my truck on another block
         D                      Em
cause the sub-prime loan got my ass in hock.
      Em                       C
Gotta couple good friends with helping hands
         D                           Em
I need a brand new job with a health care plan.
     Em                     C
They closed the plant, they stole my job
        D                              Em
told me crime don’t pay unless you ask the mob.
     Em                    C 
So i smoke a little grass, drink a little wine.
D                    Em
Watch a little tube, try to kill a little time.
    Em                 C
And every single day i fall a little more behind.
        D                  Em
But i’m paying it no mind, it’ll all be fine.


Chorus
Em                     C D Em
I get by (got it good)
             Em               C D Em
I barely get by (got it good)
             Em         C D Em
I barely get by
               
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie
             Em    C D Em
I barely get by
I laugh not to cry
I stay a little high
I ain’t gonna lie (got it good)

Em                  C             
Party people in the place to be
         D                       Em
Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
    Em                  C
It’s on and on till the brake of dawn
       D                          Em
Got to keep the rent paid and the power on
Em                     C
  Yes yes y’all and it never stops.
        D                              Em
I don’t trust the government, i don’t trust no cops.
   Em                     C
We dip and we dive and we socialize
   D                                   Em
We struggle and we strive just to stay alive.

   Em   C D Em
I get by
             Em  C D Em
I barely get by

No Chords
When I finally anekatips get home I can’t relax.
cause i’ve been over worked and i’ve been over taxed.
My bank accounts empty, all my cards are maxed.
and i ain't looking for no pity, i’m just stating the facts.

No Chords
I voted for some change and it’s kinda strange,
No it’s all i got in my pocket.
I bought a few led’s, now i’m growing some trees,
And it’s a sweet fking hustle don’t knock it.

No chords
I told y’all before i would break the law
to put some food in my baby girl’s belly.
cause the senator man took a bribe in hand
And went and shipped my job to new delhi.

Chorus

Em                  C
Party people in the place to be
         D                       Em
Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
Em                      C
It’s on and on till the brake of dawn
       D                          Em
Got to keep the rent paid and the power on
Em                   C
Yes yes y’all and it never stops.
D
I don’t trust the government
Em
I don’t trust no cops.
Em                     C
I dip and i dive and i socialize
D                                    Em
I struggle and i strive just to stay alive.

Chorus

Capo on one yes...

However: Try the progression of Em - G - Dsus3 - A

(the D without the F# is not really important)
So basically Em - G - A whole song.
