[INTRO]
A    /    C#7  /    F#m  /    Dm7  /            
A    F#m  B7   E7   A    Cm7  Bm7  E7


[VERSE 1]
  A                             C#7
A man just came to call for my rent
          F#m                           Dm7
I had to hide under the table till he knocked six times and went
       A                  F#m
But I can’t hold on much longer
B7                    E7                   A      Cm7    Bm7   E7     
       It seems like everything is down on me

[VERSE 2]
   A                   C#7
I used to be a man of means
         F#m                     Dm7
Now you might still find a few pennies, oh Lord, in the pocket of my jeans
       A                  F#m
But I can’t hold on much longer
B7                E7                    A      D     C#m7   Cm7
    It seems like everything is down on me


[CHORUS]
Bm7                C#m7
  Now I don’t have too many friends
    Bm7    E7                    A7
In fact I can’t think of any at all no no no no
        Bm7             C#m7
Oh but just let me get back on my feet again
        D   B7/Eb                     E7     E9 
And my long lost friends will come to call 


[VERSE 3]
A                            C#7
Knocking on my own brother’s door
              F#m7                         Dm7 
People,I was knocking for an hour, till I found out he don’t live there no more 
         A            F#m
I can’t hold on much longer
B7               E7                    A     Cm7    Bm7   E7  
   It seems like everything is down on me

[CHORUS]
Bm7                C#m7
  Now I don’t have too many friends
    Bm7    E7                    A7
In fact I can’t think of any at all no no no no
        Bm7             C#m7
Oh but just let me get back on my feet again
        D   B7/Eb                     E7     E9 
And my long lost friends will come to call

  Seems like everything is down   on me

And below you can find the structure of the song.
(Which is what I usually look for since I'm not the singer of the band.)

[INTRO]
A    /    C#7  /    F#m  /    Dm7  /            
A    F#m  B7   E7   A    Cm7  Bm7  E7

[VERSE A]
A    /    C#7  /    F#m  /    Dm7  /    
A    F#m  B7   E7   A    Cm7  Bm7  E7

[VERSE B]
A    /    C#7  /    F#m  /    Dm7  /            
A    F#m  B7   E7   A    D    C#m7 Cm7

[CHORUS]
Bm7  /    C#m7 /    Bm7  E7   A7   /
Bm7  /    C#m7 /    D    B7   E7   E9


Repeat verse A and B (harp solo over verse B).
Repeat verse A but instead of the last four bars go to the outro.

[OUTRO]
A    /    F#m  /    B7   /    E7   /   
A    /    C#m  /    B7,C#,D,D#,E,F#,G,G#,A



Note: The B7 in the last part of the chorus is actually B7/Eb creating a chromatic bass line to the E7.
