I Ain't Got No Home/Old Man Trump

[Intro]
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    G
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    C


[Verse 1]
C              C         F               C
I ain't got no home, I'm just a-roamin' 'round,
C               C         G               G
Just a wandrin' worker, I go from town to town.
        C              C        F          C
And the police make it hard wherever I may go
      C            C            G        C 
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.


[Instrumental]
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    G
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    C


[Verse 2]
   C               C           F                C
My brothers and my sisters are stranded on this road,
  C             C           G                 G
A hot and dusty road that a million feet have trod;
C                C        F                C
Rich man took my home and drove me from my door
      C            C            G        C
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.


[Instrumental]
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    G
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    C


[Verse 3]
      C              C           F            C
Was a-farmin' on the shares, and always I was poor;
   C       C     G               G
My crops I lay into the banker's store.
   C                  C     F             C
My wife took down and died upon the cabin floor,
      C            C            G        C
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.


[Instrumental]
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    G
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    C


[Verse 4]
      C              C        F                  C
Beach Haven ain't my home. I just can't pay this rent.
   C                 C             G             G
My money is down the drain, and my soul is badly bent.
      C             C               F                  C
Beach Haven is like heaven where no black ones come to roam.
        C           C            G              C
No, no, no, old man Trump, Beach Haven ain't my home.


[Instrumental]
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    G
C    C    F    C
C    C    G    C


[Verse 5]
    C          C           F               C
Now as I look around, it's mighty plain to see
     C               C           G              G
This world is such a great and a funny place to be;
        C               C            F              C
Oh, the gamblin' man is rich an' the workin' man is poor,
      C            C            G        C 
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.


[Outro]
C    C    G    C
C    C    G    C

Correct the title please. This was not the name of the song and I do not care about your political viewpoints, the world is drowning it as it is. Thank you
