																				INTRO
Am  C  

Am  G  C


Verse
C

You walk in, half past nine



    

Lookin like a queen

Serving me with papers
G             C

Calling me obscene

Woman Ive tried so hard
               Am
Just to do my best
C

Theyre gonna put me in the poor house
        Am               C

And youll take all the rest

INTRO X1

Up all day, down all night
Working on the job
Everything I do is wrong
I always end up right
Woman I try so hard
Done all I can do
Theyre gonna put me in the poor house
Leave all the best for you


Am    C    

Am     G         C          X2
Ooooooooo in the poor house  

VERSE CHORDS X1
INTRO X1

If a drove a pulpwood truck
Would you love me more? 
Will you bring me diamonds
And hang around my door
Woman, Ive done my best
Theyre aint much left for me
Theyre gonna put me in the poor house
And throw away the key

Am                      C       
   In the poor house
 Am     G         C                          
 Ooooooooo in the poor house  

You walk in, half past nine
Lookin like a queen
Serving me with papers
Calling me obscene
Woman Ive tried so hard
Just to do my best
Theyre gonna put me in the poor house
And youll take all the rest

Up all day, down all night
Working on the job
Everything I do is wrong
I always end up right
Woman I try so hard
Done all I can do
Theyre gonna put me in the poor house
Leave all the best for you

Am                       C       
   In the poor house
Am     G         C                  X2
Ooooooooo in the poor house

View Just Lyrics...

You walk in, half past nine
Lookin like a queen,
Serving me with papers,
Calling me obscene.
Woman I've tried so hard
Just to do my best
They're gonna put me in the poor house
And you'll take all the rest.

Up all day,
Down all night
Working on the job
Everything I do is wrong
I always end up right.
Woman I try so hard
Done all I can do.
They're gonna put me in the poor house
Leave all the best for you.

ooo in the poor house
ooo in the poor house

If a drove a pulpwood truck
Would you love me more?
Will you bring me diamonds
And hang around my door
Woman , I've done my best
They're ain't much left for me.
They're gonna put me in the poor house
And throw away the key.

ooo in the poor house

You walk in, half past nine
Lookin like a queen,
Serving me with papers,
Calling me obscene.
Woman I've tried so hard
Just to do my best
They're gonna put me in the poor house
And you'll take all the rest.

Up all day,
Down all night
Working on the job
Everything I do is wrong
I always end up right.
Woman I try so hard
Done all I can do.
They're gonna put me in the poor house
Leave all the best for you.
