...LOVE OF THE COMMON PEOPLE... by Nicky Thomas
-------------------------------................

*Released 1970*


Intro:

G  C, G

Verse 1:

G
 Living on free food tickets,
Water in the milk from a hole in the roof,
          F                               C   D
Where the rain came through; what can you do?

G
 Tears from your little sister,
Crying 'cos she doesn't have a dress without a patch,
        F                          C          D
For the party to go, but you know, she'll get by.

Chorus 1:

           G                         C
'Cos she's living in the love of the common people;
G                            D
 Smile's from the heart of a family man.
G                        C
 Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
G                              D                        G
 Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

Interlude:

G

Verse 2:

       G
It's a good thing you don't have a bus fare;
It would fall through the hole in your pocket,
                         F
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground;
                     C               D
You got to walk into town, to find a job.

G
 Tryin' to keep your hands warm,
When the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through,
    F
And chills you to the bone.
                       C                D
So now you'd better go home, where it's warm.

Chorus 2:

           G                         C
'Cos she's living in the love of the common people;
G                            D
 Smile's from the heart of a family man.
G                        C
 Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
G                              D                        G
 Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

G#  C#, G# (x2)

Verse 3:

G#
 Living on a dream ain't easy,
But the closer the knit, the tighter the fit,
        F#
And the chills stay away;
                C#                 D#
You take 'em in stride, for family pride.

              G#
You know that faith is your foundation,
With a whole lot of love and a warm conversation,
     F#
But, don't forget to pray;
             C#                   D#
Just make it strong, where you be-long.

Chorus 3:

              G#                    C#
Where you can live in a love of the common people,
G#                           D#
 Smile's from the heart of a family man.
G#                       C#
 Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
G#                             D#
 Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can.

Chorus 4:

        G#                    C#
You can live in a love of the common people,
G#                           D#
 Smile's from the heart of a family man.
G#                       C#
 Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
G#                             D#
 Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can.
