Israelite:Desmond Dekker(& The Aces.)
#1 in UK and #9 in USA in '68.
***(Check out the video on YouTube.
When we heard this song back in '68 we
thought he was singing 'me ears are a-light.')***

#1.(Capo 2nd fret for orig. Plus there are slightly
    different versions of this song.)

A
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sah,
              A7
so that every mouth can be fed.
D     E           A          F G
poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

#2.
A
Wife and kids, dem pack up and-a leave me.
                         A7
Darling, she said, I was yours to receive.
D     E           A          C D
poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

#3.
A
Shirt dem a tear up, trousers a go.
                            A7
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde.
D     E           A          C D
poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

#4.
A
After a storm there must be a calm.
                           A7
catch me in your farm..you sound an alarm.
D     E           A          C D
poor, poor me, me-Israelite. Aah.

REPEAT WHOLE SONG:
ADD:
D          E      A

I think it's capo on the first fret to sound like the original? Otherwise really great version, thanks for putting it up.
Also for some reason it did'nt show up when I searched for the song by name.
