Brooklyn Bridge
Recorded by Bobby Bare
Written by Bobby Bare and Lance Guyness

C F
Oh there I stood in the great big city
G7 C
Where the buildings are tall and the girls are all pretty
F
Up stepped a man he said come here son
G7 C
I got a big deal now if you got the mon'
F
I bought the Brooklyn Bridge
G7 C G7
Two dollars two cigarettes and an autograph picture of Elvis

C F
Well I kept my bridge for a day or so
G7 C
But then my money was a runnin' low
F
And I tried to make me a sale
G7
But the man done come and he took me to jail
F G7
Said I's crazy laughed at told me
C
That a society frowned upon it

G7 C F
Well then he stood me up in a front of a judge
G7 C
I stood there a grinnin' but the judge didn't budge
F
He said thirty dollars or thirty days
G7 F
And I looked at him and all I could say

Was all that take thirty dollars
G7
Couldn't make that thirty-five could you
C G7
Spend all my money on that bridge

C F
Well after ninety days in that man's jail
G7 C
I still tryin' to make me a sale
F
Met some cat called Skid Row Pete
G7 C
So I traded it off for 52nd Street
F G7 C
Big deal oh big man of action a big transaction

G7 F
I bet the folks back home could never realize
G7 C
That in a great big town this size

F
Boy like theirs could own the street
G7 C
Spend his days just to keepin' it neat
F G7
Pickin' up cigarette butts wine bottles
C F C
Terrorizing the pedestrians shoo them pigeons
G7
I bet old Skid Row Pete ain't got no pigeons
C
On the Brooklyn Bridge
F
I bet he can’t trade that bridge off either
C
Because a man gonna come take him down
