Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This one will be much easier to play along with: it has better chord configurations for guitar,
 and has the whole lyrics with all the chords for simple folk (like me).

[VERSE 1]

D        E7sus                       D   A   D   A
  My old man, he's a singer in the park

D                      E7sus
  He's a walker in the rain,

                        D   A7sus  Am7
he's a dancer in the dark

D                         A7sus          A7        D
We don't need no piece of paper from the City Hall 

            E7      D
Keeping us tied and true

D        E7sus                  D   A   D   A
  My old man, keeping away my blues


[VERSE 2]

D        E7sus                                                     D   A   D   A
He's my sunshine in the morning, he's my fireworks at the end of the day

D                         E7sus
He's the warmest chord I ever heard

                          D   A7sus  Am7
Play that warm chord, play and stay baby

D                         A7sus          A7        D
We don't need no piece of paper from the City Hall 

            E7      D
Keeping us tied and true

D        E7sus                  D   A   D   A
  My old man, keeping away my blues


[BRIDGE*]
              Abm7                          Bbm  Gbmaj7
But when he's gone, me and them lonesome blues    collide

    Db         Dbm7     B
The bed's too big, the frying pan's too wide

(*Reminder: bridge chords:
Abm7: 004444   --   Bbm: 003321  --  Gbmaj: 004321

[VERSE 3]

D             E7sus                         D   A   D   A
Then he comes home, and he takes me in his loving arms

D                         E7sus
And he tells me all his troubles

                          D   A7sus  Am7
And he tells me all my charms

D                         A7sus          A7      D
We don't need no piece of paper from the City Hall 

            E7      D
Keeping us tied and true, no

D        E7sus                  D   A   D   A
  My old man, keeping away my blues

The bed's too big, the frying pan's too wide

We don't need no piece of paper from the City Hall

Keeping us tied and true

  My old man, keeping away my lonesome blues
