The Last Little Bit of Green in the City

 

c-7      c-6     c-7     c-6

 

 

f-7       c-7

Crazy Adams got real clout now, he

Traded his brain for a pushcart heart

He doesn’t want to talk about his transformation, he says he

Ab7                               G7      c-6

Left it all behind at the police station

 

They put him in charge of the committee to redo this

Hot mess of crooked avenues.  Now he

Goes around sayin’ “That won’t fly, we gotta

Turn it off, we gotta make it hurry by.”

 

CHORUS

f-7        c-7

I feel bad.  I feel blue.

They got to him, they’re gonna

Get to me and you.  They’re gonna

Ab7

Rewrite the song

D7 ALT #9 b13      

It didn’t take them long to find the

G7ALT#9b13     

Last little bit of green in the city.

 

Little Sue, oh she don’t know what to do

She been up and down this boulevard, her feet are turnin’ blue, well they

Ought to light a marquee with her name and address so she can

Trade in her stilettos for a Sunday dress

 

She’s lookin for her children now, she don’t know where they went

She thinks they were stolen by the president

She wrote a song about them but it was too sad to sing

Somebody said it wasn’t worth an imitation ring

 

CHORUS

f-7        c-6

I feel bad.  I feel blue.

They got to her, they’re gonna

Get to me and you.  They’re gonna

Rewrite the song

D7 ALT #9 b13      

It won’t be long before they kill the

G7ALT#9b13     

Last little bit of green in the city.

 

Honest Bobby, he don’t have any hobby.  He got

Eighty hour weeks doing shifts in the lobby

He thinks he’s gettin out but he don’t know what he’s into

He gonna / try a new design to attach his skin to.

 

That tattoo, you know it ain’t blue.  It’s got

A little yellow fellow in a neon running shoe

When Crazy Adams saw it, you know, he wrote up a report and when they

Fine him for the line he gonna come up pretty short.

 

CHORUS

f-7        c-6

I feel bad.  I feel blue.

They got to him, they’re gonna

Get to me and you.  They’re gonna

Rewrite the song

D7 ALT #9 b13      

It won’t be long before they fill the

G7ALT#9b13     

Last little bit of green in the city.
