Alan Jackson - Little Man

Printable Version


From "Little Man" (1998)
(Alan Jackson)

Capo: 2nd Fret

[C]I remember walking round the [G]court square sidewalks
[F]Looking in windows at things I couldn't want
[C]There's Johnson's Hardware and [G]Morton's Jewelry
And the [F]Ol' Lee King's Apothecary
They were the [C]little man
[F]  The [C]little man

I go back now the [G]stores are empty
Ex[F]cept an old coke sign dated 1950
[C]Boarded up like they [G]never existed
[F]Renovated and called historic district
There [C]goes the little man
[F]  There goes the [C]little man

CHORUS:
Now the [Am]court squares's just a [F]set of streets
That [C]People go round but they [G]seldom think
About the [Am]little man that [F]built this town
[C]Before the big money [G]shut 'em down
And killed the [C]little man
[F]  oh, the [C]little man

He pumped your gas and [G]he'd clean your glass
One [F]cold rainy night he fixed your flat
A [C]new store came where you [G]do it yourself
You [F]buy a lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget the [C]little man
[F]  Forget about that [C]little man

He hung on there for a [G]few more years
He [F]couldn't sell slurpees and he wouldn't sell beer
Now the [C]bank rents the station to a [G]man down the road
And they sell [F]velvet Elvis and second hand clothes
There goes the [C]little man
[F]  There goes another [C]little man

CHORUS

[C]Now the stores are lined up in a [G]concrete strip
You can [F]buy the whole world in just one trip
[C]Save a penny cause it's [G]jumbo size
[F]They don't even realize
They're killing the [C]little man
[F]  Oh, the [C]little man

CHORUS

[C]It wasn't long ago when [G]I was a child
An [F]old black man came with his mule and plow
He [C]broke the ground where we [G]grew our garden
[F]Back before we'd all forgotten
About the [C]little man
[F]  The [C]little man
[F]  Long live the [C]little man
[F]  God bless the little man [C]
