[Verse 1]

A
Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk
From a hole in the roof
          G                   
Where the rain came through
             D    E
What can you do, hmmm?
A
Tears from your little sister
Crying because she doesn't have
A dress without a patch
        G
For the party to go
        D                E
But she knows she'll get by

[Chorus]

             A
'Cause she's living in
                D      E
The love of the common people
A
Smiles from the heart
     D      E
Of a family man
A
Daddy's gonna buy you
  D        E
A dream to cling to
A
Mama's gonna love you
        D           E
Just as much as she can
        A
And she can

[Verse 2]

       B
It's a good thing
You don't have a bus fare
It would fall through the hole
In your pocket and you'd lose it
       A
In the snow on the ground
           E
You got to walk into town
          F#
To find a job
B
Tryin' to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe
Let the snow come through
    A
And chill you to the bone
                        E
Somehow you'd better go home
           F#
Where it's warm

[Chorus]

              B
Where you can live in 
                E      F#
the love of the common people
B
Smile from the heart
     E      F#
Of a family man
B
Daddy's gonna buy you
  E        F#
A dream to cling to
B
Mama's gonna love you
        E           F#
Just as much as she can
        B
And she can

[Verse 3]

C#
Living on a dream ain't easy
But the closer the knit
The tighter the fit
        B
And the chills stay away
                     F#              
'Cause we take 'em in stride
           G#
For family pride
              C#
You know that faith
Is in your foundation
With a whole lot of love
And a warm conversation
             B
But don't forget to pray
                F#
It's makin' it strong
          G#
Where you belong

[Chorus]

          C#
And we're living in
                F#     G#
The love of the common people
C#
Smiles from the heart
     F#     G#
Of a family man
C#
Daddy's gonna buy you
  F#       G#
A dream to cling to
C#
Mama's gonna love you
        F#          G#
Just as much as she can
           D#
Yes, we're living in
                G#     A#
The love of the common people
D#
Smile's from the heart
     G#     A#
Of a family man
D#
Daddy's gonna buy you
  G#       A#
A dream to cling to
D#
Mama's gonna love you
        G#          A#
Just as much as she can...
