 I'm a college man and I'm very wealthy

 With a space between her teeth

 My sister's a dancer up in Baltimore
D           D7/F#   C/G       G 
 At a small cafe on Main
G            D/F#                      Em      B7sus4/E  Em
 But she ran off with a Negro from the Eastern Shore
A7           A7/C#                D     [ D D/E D/F# ]

A7            A7/C#               D          [ D D/E D/F# ]
 When he come out he was white as you and me


[Verse]

 He said, "Girl, I ain't a Negro, I'm a millionaire
D          D7/F#    C/G       G 
 As you can plainly see
G        D/F#                Em  B7sus4/E  Em
 So many women were after my money
A7                A7/C#             D        [ D D/E D/F# ]
 But I'm proud to say you were only after me


[Verse]
G                         E7              A7
 “Gonna teach you to play polo and how to water-ski
D              D7/F#    C/G       G 
 Won't have to dance no more
G         D/F#              Em      B7sus4/E  Em
 And I no longer have to pretend to be
A7       A7/C#            D        [ D D/E D/F# ]
 A Negro from the Eastern Shore."
