Big Man In A Big House:Leroy Van Dyke.
- Album - Walk On By - on MERCURY Records
in 1961.



INTRO:
 F                    G
(He's a big man, in a big house.)


#1.
      C                    F                         
Well, when he was a kid he dreamed about a big 
      C
house on a hill.
                   F                    G
Far, far away from Shantytown and pover-ty.
C                      F                          
He was only sixteen, a kid full of dreams, when 
   C
he ran away.
            F                  G                         
He left his mom a note sayin', you'll be proud 
           C
of me some day.


CHORUS:
           F            C               F
When I'm a big man in a big house, with acres and 
         C
acres of ground.
          F            C                 F
I'll be a big man in a big house, with a big high
          C
fence all around.
  F                  C      G
A big high fence all around.


#2.
         C                 F                     C
Well, he settled down in a great big town and he worked 

so hard.
                             F                   G
But the harder he'd work the more he'd spend, it seemed.
    C                                   F                   
And all his new found friends they made fun of him and 
      C
said, come along.
          F                    G                C
And we'll show you how you can fulfill all your dreams.



CHORUS:
             F            C               F
You'lll be a big man in a big house, with acres and 
         C
acres of ground.
            F            C                 F
You'll be a big man in a big house, with a big high
          C
fence all around.
  F                  C      G
A big high fence all around.



#3.
       C                      F              C
He was just twenty-one when a loaded gun was his 

downfall.
                               F                      
For he joined the gang, he did something he shouldn't 
G
do.
         C               F                       C
Then one rainy night the police came by and they took 

him in.
        F                          G                   C
And the judge said, son, there's a place for kids like you.



CHORUS:
            F            C               F
Now, he's a big man in a big house, with acres and
         C
acres of ground.
            F            C                 F
Yes, he's a big man in a big house, with a big high
          C
fence all around.


OUTRO:
  F                  C            F
A big high fence all around..With acres and acres of 
C
ground..(Fade.)




A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
