Eraserheads

   Note: Original key is 1/2 step lower (Abm)

   Intro: Am--F-G--; (2x) G#,
          Am--F-G--; (2x) G#,

  Am                         F-G
   I know a man who had nothing
  Am                         F-G
   He was a poor man all his life
  Am                         F         G
   He lived in a shack by the roadside
  Am                         F       G  G#,
   With starving kids and a loving wife

   Interlude: Am--F-G-; (2x) G#,

  Am                       F     G
   He went to church every Sunday
  Am                            F    G
   He prays from morning until night, he said
  Am                            F      G
   "Good Lord, why have you forsaken me
  Am                            F         G   G#,
   When everything I did I thought was right"

               Refrain 1
  Em                    Am
   Now my Life is coming to an end 
         F                            C  
   There's only one thing I'm wishing for
  Em                  Am
   All my days I have never sinned
         F 
   So I hope you won't ignore 
    G                  G-
   What I'm asking for

                Chorus 1
  C
   Oh honey when I die
  F                G
   Dress me up in a coat and tie
  C
   Give me a pair of shoes
  F                       G 
   That I haven't wore in a long time
  C
   Put me in a golden box
  F                 G
   Not a cross with a pile of rocks
  C
   Bury me where the grass is green 
             F           G   
   And the gates are shining

                Chorus 2
  C    G           F
   Oh honey when I die
  C
   Give me a bed of roses 
  G               F 
   Where I could lie
              C               G            F
   I'm gonna use up all the money that I saved
  C            G              F(pause)          G-G#
   'Cause I don't wanna lie in a poor man's grave

   Interlude: Am--F-G-; (2x) G#,

  Am                          F-G
   I know a man who had nothing
  Am                         F         G
   He dreamed of satin sheets all his life
  Am                            F-G
   He lived and worked like a dog
  Am                              F         G G#,
   Licking every boot he sees just to survive

  Am                             F-G
   He comes home drunk every night
  Am                       F            G      
   Wakes up the kids and talks to his wife, he said
  Am                       F      G
   "Honey you have been so good to me
  Am                      F     G   
   I only wish we had a better life"

                 Refrain 2
  Em                       Am       
   And now my life's coming to an end
             F                          C
   There's only one thing I'm wishing for
  Em                    Am
   All my days I have lived in shame
          F                
   So I hope you won't ignore
          G                 G-
   Just what I'm asking for

   (Repeat Chorus 1)

   (Repeat Chorus 2 except last line)

  C               F               G            
   'Cause I don't wanna lie in a poor man's

   (Repeat Chorus 2 except last line)

  C               G              F pause         G#,Am 
   'Cause I dont wanna lie in a poor man's grave
