Rod Clements - Bourgeois Blues


CAPO: 5th Fret



[Intro]
C

[Verse 1]

Listen now people, take a tip from me

Don't try to find a home in Washington, DC 
                 F
It's a bourgeois town 
            C
A bourgeois town 
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around


[Verse 2]

Well, the folks down in Washington, they know how 

To call a coloured man a nigger just to see him bow 
                 F
It's a bourgeois town 
            C
A bourgeois town 
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around


[Instrumental]
C            F      C      G 
C            F      C      G      C



[Verse 3]

Me and my wife we was going upstairs 

And the landlord says, "I don't want no niggers up there"
                 F
Why, a bourgeois town 
            C
A bourgeois town 
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around


[Verse 4]

Well, it's the home of the brave and land of the free 

I won't be mistreated by no bourgeoisie 
                F
In no bourgeois town 
            C
A bourgeois town 
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around
          G 
I got the bourgeois blues 
                            C
And I'm spreading the news around
