The King Of Oak Street
Recorded by Kenny Rogers
written by Alex Harvey

C F C
Like a leaf caught in the wind he drifted a while
F C
With no purpose or direction to his life
F G7
He tried to get himself together
C F
And pacify his mind
C G7 C
And forget about the things he left behind

G7 C
A crying woman he left standing in his door
Am G7 C
With a two month old baby in her arms
G7 C
His little black book he left torn upon the floor
Am F G7
God only knows he never meant to do her wrong

C F C
A careless weekend on the other side of town
F C
Has torn the king of Oak Street's Castle down
F G7
And all week long he's tried to phone her
C F
But she won't let him explain
C G7 C
Now Sunday morning finds him walking in the rain

G7 C
He sits down in a phone booth and he prays
Am G7 C
That she'll forgive him and she'll believe he's changed his ways
G7 C
With shaking hands he deposits his last dime
Am F G7
And he's still praying that she won't hang up this time

C F C
Then the sweetest voice he's ever heard says hello
F C
Breakfast's almost ready baby come on home
F G7
I've thought the whole thing over
C F
And I think I understand
C G7 C
That the king of Oak Street is just an ordinary man

F G7
I've thought the whole thing over
C F
And I think I understand
C G7 C
That the king of Oak Street is just an ordinary man
