Progression : 



riff 1  x 3 



riff 2 
We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change, 
The hair on his face is dirt and dreadlocked in for the mane. 
He asks a man for what he can spare with shame in his eyes, 
Get a job you fuckin' slob's all he replied. 
God forbid you'd ever have to walk a mile in his shoes, 
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues. 
  



riff 2 
Yah then you really might know what it's like 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like 
  



riff 3 
  



riff 2 
And Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love, 
He said don't worry 'bout a thing baby doll, i'm the man you've been 
 dreamin' of. 
Three months later he say he won't date her or return her call, 
And she swears god damn if they find that man cuttin' off his balls. 
And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin'  through the door. 
They call her a killer an' they call her a sinner an' they call her a 
 whore. 
God forbid you'd ever have to walk a mile in her shoes, 
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose. 
  



riff 2 
Yah then you really might know what it's like 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like 
  
  



riff 1 
I seen a rich man beg, I seen a good man sin, I've seen a tough man cry 
I seen a loser win, and a sad man grin, I heard an honest man lie 
I've seen the good side of bad and the down side of up and everything 
 between. 
I licked the silver spoon, drank from the golden cup, an' smoked the 
 finest green. 
I strolled the badest dimes at least a couple of times before i broke 
 their heart. 
You know where it ends, yo it usually depends on where you start 
  



riff 3 
  



riff 2 
I knew this kid named Max he used to get fat stacks out on the corner 
 with drugs, 
He liked to hang out late, he like to get shit faced and keep the pace 
 with thugs. 
Until late one night there was a pick up fight and Max lost his head, 
He pulled out his chrome .45 and talked some shit and wound up dead. 
Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of his pain 
You know it comes that way at least that's what they say when you play 
 the game. 
And God forbid you'd ever have to wake up to hear the news, 
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose. 
  



riff 2 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like (what it's like) 
Yah then you really might know what it's like  (what it's like) 
To have the blues
