Em                            G
Two packs of cigarettes a day The strongest whiskey Kentucky can make

A                           C
That's the recipe  to put a vagabond on his hands and knees

Em                                  
I watched it all up close   I knew it more than most

G                      
I saw a side of him I could never show    

A                        C
for the sympathy   for a world that wouldn't let him be

Em                      G
That's the man he was   Have you heard enough?


Em     G            D                C                   Em
What a shame What a shame to judge a life that you can't change

Em        G                     D                   C                 Em
The choir sings the chuch bells ring  so won't you give this man his wings  

E      G                D              C                 Am
what a shame to have to beg you to see we're not all the same

Em
What a shame


Em                                         G
There's a hard life for every silver spoon There's a touch of grey for 

every shade of blue

A                                           C
That's the way that I see life if there was nothing wrong then there'd be 

nothing right

Em
and for this working man They said could barely stand 

G
There's got to be a better place to land

A                         C
Some kind of remedy for a world that wouldn't let him be

Em                     G 
That's the man he was  Have you heard enough


Em     G            D                C                   Em
What a shame What a shame to judge a life that you can't change

Em        G                     D                   C                 Em
The choir sings the chuch bells ring  so won't you give this man his wings  

E      G                D              C                 Am
what a shame to have to beg you to see we're not all the same

Em
What a shame


Am     Bsus4    C                   D
God forgive the hands that laid you down    (Note: When you play Bsus4 dont 
                                          strum the bass or high E strings) 
G               D
They never knew how,

Am       Bsus4  C                   D
but your broken heart can break the sound

G              D
And change the season

Am                 G       Bsus4
Now the leaves are falling faster,

Am           G
Happily ever after

Am                       G    Bsus4
You gave me hope through your endeavors

Am      Bsus4 C     D   F   G  Am
And now you   will live for-ev-er

I havent quite got the key change figured out from the recording but it isnt 
neccesary to play the song
