"Showboat - Ol Man River"
set tempo
[Verse 1]
           Bb                          Eb
There's an old man called the Mississippi
           Bb                      F7
That's the old man that I wants to be
          Gm                         Cm
What does he care if the world's got troubles
          Gm             Cm   F7    G
What does he care if the land ain't free

[Verse 2]
Bb      Eb          Bb      Eb 
Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River, 
   Bb        Gb              Bb        Eb 
he don't say nothin', but he must know somethin', 
   F          F7          F        F7      Bb
he just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along.

[Verse 3] 
   Bb          Eb              Bb          Eb 
He don't plant tatters, and he don't plant cotton, 
    Bb        Dm             Gm      Gb7 
and them what plants em, are soon forgotten 
    F       Cm          F     Eb       Bb
But Ol' Man River, just keeps rollin' along. 
[Verse 4]
Gm     Dm      Gm 
You and me, we sweat and strain, 
Dm       Gm         Dm          Gm 
body all achin' and racked with pain. 
Dm        Gb7        Dm        Gb7 
Tote that barge and lift that bail, 
    Dm           Gb7            Dm       Cm 
you get a little drunk and you lands in jail. 
[Verse 5]
Bb      Gb        Bb      Gb 
I gets weary, and sick of trying, 
    Bb       Cm              Gm        D7 
I'm tired of livin', but I'm scared of dyin', 
    Bb      Gm        Cm         F7      Bb
but Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along.
