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
