INTRO: G Em G Em


CHORUS:
          G                   Em
There's a black cloud hanging over my head,
G       D       Em
down to my last buck.
              G     D             Em
With that old black cloud hanging over my head,
            Am      D             G
there ain't no such thing as good luck.

#1.
G                             Em
On the very first Saturday of every month I go 
   G                   Em
to town to get me some pay.
       G               Em
When I ask my boss man about the draw, this is
Am               G
what my boss man say.

CHORUS:
          G                   Em
There's a black cloud hanging over my head,
G       D       Em
down to my last buck.
              G     D             Em
With that old black cloud hanging over my head,
            Am      D             G
there ain't no such thing as good luck.

#2.
        Em
Well, I earn my livin' by the sweat of my brow,
       Am                   Em
I work hard at my job every day.
Em
With that old black cloud hanging over my head
     Am               G
that drives my dreams away.

#3.
          Em             D           Em
And if it wasn't for the help of the one I love 
   Am               Em
to tell my troubles to.
Em
There just ain't no tellin' what that old black 
            Am                     G
cloud might drive this poor boy to do.


CHORUS:
          G                   Em
There's a black cloud hanging over my head,
G       D       Em
down to my last buck.
              G     D             Em
With that old black cloud hanging over my head,
            Am      D             G
there ain't no such thing as good luck.

#4.
D       G                         Em
I put a seed in the ground for to grow me a tree,
        G                     Em
this is what that black cloud done.
D  G                       Em
It sent all the locusts to eat up the tree..I
         Am                G
tell ya, I'm not the lucky one.

#5.
D   G                          Em
And one of these days when I'm laid away, I know 
     G                 Em
that black cloud can't wait.
           G                Em
It's gonna hover over me on Judgement Day to keep 
   Am                G
me out of the Pearly Gate.

CHORUS:
          G                   Em
There's a black cloud hanging over my head,
G       D       Em
down to my last buck.
              G     D             Em
With that old black cloud hanging over my head,
            Am      D             G
there ain't no such thing as good luck.
