...CAN'T KEEP A GOOD MAN DOWN... by Randy Newman
--------------------------------................

*from 'Randy Newman's Faust' (1995)*


Intro:

A7

Dm         A7      Dm
 Everybody gather 'round me;
      Bbm               Dm
I got somethin' I wanna tell you...

Interlude:

Bbm  Dm, Bbm  G, Db
                  Listen...

Verse 1:

F                          A7
 When you're on the bottom like I am today,
D7
 And those around you are losing faith,
In what you're tryin' to do;
G9                                 C7
 There is only one thing a man can say;
    Dm    Bb     C7       F    C7, F
You can't keep a good man down.

Verse 2:

F                       A7
 There've been mistakes and I've made a few,
D7
 But, oh, what a price I had to pay.
G9                               C7
 Yet still they try to push me a-round,
         Dm    Bb     C7       F    C, C7
But they can't keep a good man down.

Bridge 1:

F7
 There may be times, when I'm feelin' low,
       Eb    Bb A   Bb
I lose sight of the dream.
            Eb    Bb A   Bb
(Don't lose sight of the dream).

G7
 But that's alright, 'cos soon, I know;
        C7
I'll be back on top again, runnin' things. Hey, hey.

Verse 3:

F                       A7
 Treat a man like dirt; give him no respect for who he is,
D7
 Expect something dirty in return.
           G9                                     C7
Oh,they're flyin' high up there but they've got a lot to learn.
            Dm    Bb     C7       F    C7, F
Because you can't keep a good man down.

Interlude:

F

Coda:

Bb              Bdim      F                 Dm
 They shame me, blame me; they're tryin' to frame me.
         Dm    Bb     F              Dm    Bb     F
But they can't keep a good man, they can't keep a good man,
     Dm    Bb     A7       Dm    F     Em    Bbm
They can't keep a good man down, woah, woah, woah...

     F            C7         (Ab)
They can't keep a good man... down.

Outro:

Ab  G, Ab  G, F  E, F (x2)
