Life Of A Poor Boy
Recorded by Stonewall Jackson
Written by E. C. (Mac) McCarty

G C G D7
When I was just a youngster and hardly in my teens
G C D7 G
I went to school on many a day with faded old blue jeans
C G D7
The patches they were many the seat was all thread bare
G C D7 G
But a poor girl didn't notice and a poor boy didn't care

C D7 G
A poor boy don't have no money a poor boy don't have no dough
C G D7
Give a poor boy a pretty little girl and watch that poor boy go
G C G D7
He's the backbone of the nation the pappy of the land
G C
With a two buck loan he'll build him a home
D7 G
And raise him a poor boy clan

C G D7
His worries they are many his pleasures are but few
G C D7 G
But that don't worry a poor boy his pappy had 'em too
C G D7
His living don't come easy he has to sweat it out
G C D7 G
But he'd rather be a poor boy than a wealthy gad-a-bout

Repeat #2

C G D7
If it wasn't for the poor boy a lot would go un-done
G C D7 G
The plow would never furrow or the mill would never run
C G D7
There wouldn't be no taters there wouldn't be no beans
G C D7 G
The rich would all be poor boys in faded old blue jeans

Repeat #2
