It's only a shanty in old shanty town, it's roof is so slanty, it touches the ground
       G                G7           C             C7
But my tum - bled down shack, by an old railroad track
        D             D7         G          G7
Like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back

     C          E7       A7                   D7         D#dim         D9       D7

There's a queen waiting there, in a sil-very crown

In a shanty in old shanty town

There's a shanty in a track an' although it's just a shack
          A7                                 D7
There's a G.I. loan, gotta pay it back, the paint's brand new,
        D#dim                     D9 
but the loan is overdue, and I'm gonna, blow my stack
         G                        G7                           C                   C7
It's a knocked-out pad, but the neighbors are mad, 'cause the cat next door is a swingin' lad
D                    D7                     G                         G7
Out o' my mind most all o' the time, this squaresville settlement's drivin' me mad
    C                     E7                   A7   
I'd be just as sassy as Trigger or Lassie, I wouldn't even pay my union dues
   D7                 D#dim        D9
A toast to all, let's have a ball, hi-fi records blow rhythm and blues
        F                       Fm              C   -  E7     -       A7
Gotta queen waitin' there in a contour chair, gave up rockin' 'cause she's no square
         Dm7                          G      -      G7 
But I'm jumpin' up and down an' I'm actin' like a clown
     -     C     NC...                      Cdim - Dm7 - G7
'Cause I gotta get back to my shanty town

     C          E7       A7                   D7         D#dim         D9        D7
I'd give up my palace if I were a king, it's more than a palace - it's my ev'rything
