Poor Man's Out - Paul Sachs

from Tribes Hill Song Book Volume 1

Poor Man’s Out - words and music by Paul Sachs

It's capo'd at the 4th fret and the key is B. With a G chording. I'll put the chords in G to save from confusion.

Also here's a vid of me doing it.

G
A poor man’s out
C                 G
Is filled with prayers
G
For a better life
D
He still cares
Em                   Dwith F# in bass
For the kind of future
G                           C
Than what was his fate
C                                      G
When you’re not born for good luck
        D          G
You contemplate
C                     G
There’s a lost highway
C                     G
On an unknown road
C                     G
In a lawless land
                    Em
Where there is no code
                                 G
Somewhere east of eden

A poor man’s out
Might come someday
From a Lotto ticket
Or some other way
There’s a buried treasure
Somewhere at sea
But that’s the false restitution
Of what could be

There’s a lost highway
On an unknown road
In a lawless land
Where there is no code
Somewhere east of eden

C            D
See the smokestacks
BM            C
Of closed factories
C                D         C
Against a cloudy sky
C           D
Rusted train tracks
BM           A7
Still hold memories
C             D        G
Of them going by


A poor mans out
Ain’t no fun
It’s filled with dreams
Of what may come
A potter’s field
Of unmarked graves...
