Get up in the night, I couldn't fight my feelings.

Early in the morning, it's just the same situ-ation,

Here comes the landlord, just a-knocking upon my door.

Time tough, (time tough),
                                    C
Everything is out of sight, it's so hard, (so hard, so hard, so hard).

Everything is growing higher and higher, (higher and higher).

Sister lee cannot bear it,
                         C
And brother Lincoln only stand it, now.
               F
They're crying night and day, louder and louder,
                    C
Nobody to help them make their way.
         F
I've got four hundred/month rent to pay,
                   C
And I can't find a dollar. Let me, let me tell you;

Everything is growing higher and higher, (higher and higher).

 Good times once lead into bad times,
                           C
But now the bad times take over.
                    F
When I was a little boy,
               C
I just keep on feeling it, feeling it, feeling it, feeling it...
