Poor Side Of Town:Johnny Rivers.
#1 in 1966.
E                                   F#m 
E                                   F#m 
E                                F#m 
How can you tell me how much you miss me, 
E                                               F#m 
when the last time I saw you, you wouldn't even kiss me? 
A                      G#m     F#m               A 
That rich guy you been seein', must have put you down, 
   E                   A                   E 
so welcome back, baby, to the poor side of town. 
E                                    F#m 
To him you were nothing but a little plaything, 
E                          F#m 
not much more than, an overnight fling. 
A                  G#m             F#m               A 
To me you were the greatest thing..this boy had ever found, 
    E                                    A                        
and girl, it's hard to find nice things..on the poor side of 
D                     G       C                      Bm 
I can't blame you for tryin', I'm tryin' to make it, too.. 
C                   Bm            Am           
I've got one little hangup, baby, I just can't make it  
    G   B   B7
without you. 
E                         F#m 
So tell me, are you gonna stay now?  
E                             F#m 
Will you stand by me, all the way now? 
A              G#m   F#m                A 
With you by my side, they can't keep us down, 
  E                            A                     E 
together we can make it, baby, from the poor side of town. 
E                       F#m 
So tell me how much you love me, 
E                           F#m 
come near to me and say you need me now. 
         A         G#m   F#m                      A 
Oh, with you by my side..this world can't keep us down, 
  E                            A                     E 
together we can make it, baby..from the poor side of town. 



A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.

Leave it to both Kraziekat and Pencom to leave out one of the most obvious major 7th chords in 60's pop music. And BOTH their versions appeared AFTER a CORRECT version was posted!!!
For shame, for shame.

Herr Kruger macht keine Fehler, meine Freunde.
Aber Herr Kruger sollte an dem Schleudern des
Bieres festhalten und nicht auf andere verüben.
Korrigieren Sie Mr. Kruger.
Vielleicht sind alle diese Pferd Scheise Dämpfe sind
Immer zu ihm, nein?
Three jubelt für Herrn Krüger .. er ist so schlau !!!! KK.

CPWKruger:Thanks for your comments, I always find them interesting,
if not a little 'know-it-all.' We all have our own ways of doing things
and I have never claimed to be perfect. Have a good one, KK.
