Gm Dm Gm Gm Eb- D7- 
Gm Dm  A7- D7- 
Eb Dm Eb Dm Eb Dm C-

Bb Eb Bb Eb Bb Eb

Bb      Eb                            Bb             Eb 
Can you believe me when I say there's nothing I like better
Bb           Eb                Bb         Eb 
Than just to sit here and talk with you
Bb            Eb                       Bb            Eb 
Although I'll rant and I'll rave about one thing and another
Bb               Eb                 
The beauty of it is, hope you’ll agree 
             Bb   Eb 
Though I'm a poor boy
               Bb  Eb 
I can still be happy
                 Bb   Eb
As long as I can feel free

Bb      Eb                         Bb          Eb
So many people I know getting old way too early 
        (Well are you feeling kind of weary?)
Bb         Eb                           Bb       Eb
Just to impress you with the money they made 
        (You better, you better, you better change your theory)
Bb          Eb                               Bb                          Eb
One drop of rain they complain, and it's the same about the ways they're earning
Bb                   Eb
Well that is not the way I'm gonna be

               Bb               Eb
Don't mind the rain, don't mind snow
           C7            F#-F-Eb-C#
Don't mind nothing, If I know
Cm          Ebm
You will be right here with me

Bb               Dm
________________ point of view
G#                       Gm
How can we all afford to live like you?
Bb                        Dm
The simple life is simply not enough
G#                     Gm
We have appearances we must keep up

    (Clarinet Solo)

Gm Dm D# Dm
Dm Dm D# C

Bb   Eb
Poor boy, if that's the way it's gotta be
Bb   Eb
Poor boy, it's you for you and me for me
Bb   Eb
Poor boy

Bb               Eb                        Bb                  Eb
I've tried all I can understanding all the fools and all their money 
Bb                     Eb                           Bb    Eb
When half of what they got you know they never will use
Bb            Eb                        Bb                     Eb
Enough to get by suits me fine, I don't care if they think I'm funny
Bb              Eb
I'm never gonna change my point of view

               Bb               Eb
Don't mind the rain, don't mind snow
           C7            F#-F-Eb-C#
Don't mind nothing, If I know
Cm          Ebm
You will be right here with me
Bb
All the way, na-na-nah

               Bb               Eb
Don't mind the rain, don't mind snow
           C7            F#-F-Eb-C#
Don't mind nothing, If I know
Cm          Ebm
You will be right here with me

    (Outro)

Gm Dm C Dm 
Gm Dm C Dm (repeat to fade)


- Most of the chords (especially the Eb and Bb) are power chords (except 
the A7 and D7), some of the  less common chords maybe a little out due to 
the song being played on piano and tabbed for guitar, but I did the best 
I could given that I don't yet have a piano. These chords should work on
piano, although some adjustment might be necessary.

- There is a space on the first line that Roger takes the lead on, the 
phrase that precedes 'point of view', because there are several 
conflicting lines on the internet and I don't have the CD lyrics to hand, 
so I left it blank. All other lines are almost definitely accurate, any 
that aren't right are likely mistakes on my part.

Great song, one of my favourites by Supertramp, enjoy.
