he was sittin’ in the lounge of the empire hotel
he was drinkin’ for diversion, he was thinkin’ for himself
a little money ridin’ on the maple leafs
along comes this lady in sleeves

she says
F
let me sit down, you know,
                     C
drinkin’ alone’s a shame,
it’s a shame, it’s a cryin’ shame
G                         F                    C
look at those jokers glued to that damn hockey game

F
hey, honey, you got lots of cash,
bring us ‘round a bottle and we’ll have some laughs
Bb                             G              C
gin’s what i’m drinkin’; i was raised on robbery

she says,
      F                                         C
i’m a pretty good cook, sittin’ on my groceries
       G                        F                C
come up to my kitchen, i’ll show you my best recipes
  F
i try and i try, but i can’t save a cent
i’m up after midnight cookin’ tryin’ to make my rent
    Bb                            G              C
i’m rough but I’m pleasin’; i was raised on robbery

G-F-C-G-C

   F
we had a little money once,
                                         C
they were pushin’ through a four lane highway
                   G
government gave us three thousand dollars,
    F                        C
you shoulda seen it fly away

                  F
first he bought a fifty-seven Biscayne, he put it in the ditch
he drunk up all the rest, that son of a bitch
    Bb                         G              C
his blood’s bad whiskey; i was raised on robbery

             F
you know you ain’t bad lookin’,
                             C
i like the way you hold your drinks
     G
come home with me honey,
        F                              C
i ain’t askin’ for no full-length mink

F
        hey, where you goin’?
don’t go yet, your glass ain’t empty and we just met
       Bb
you’re mean when you’re loaded;
      G              C
i was raised on robbery

G-F-C-G
