The Little Man by Alan Jackson Guitar Chords

D A
I remember walkin’ round the court square sidewalks
G
Lookin’ in windows at things I couldn’t want
D A
There’s Johnson’s Hardware and Morman’s Jewelry
G
And the old Lee Kings apothacary
D G D G
They were the little man The little man

D A
I go back now the stores are empty
G
except and old coke sign dated 1950
D A
Boarded up like they never existed
G
or renovated and called historic districts
D G D G
There goes the little man there goes the little man

[Chorus]
Bm G
Now the court square’s just a set of streets
D A
that people go round but the seldom think
Bm G
bout’ the little man that built this town
D A
before the big money shut um’ down
D G D G
and killed the little man ah, the little man

D A
He pumped your gas and he’d clean your glass
G
One cold rainy night he fixed your flat
D A
The new store came where you do it yourself
G
You buy lotto ticket and food off the shelf
D G D
forget the little man forget about that little man

D A
He hung on there for a few more years
G
but he couldn’t sell slurpies and he wouldn’t sell beer
D A
Now the bank rents the station to a man down the road
G
and they sell velvet Elvis and 2nd hand clothes
D G D
G
there goes the little man there goes another little man

D A
Now store’s lined up in a concrete strip
G
You buy the whole world in just one trip
D A
You save a penny cause it’s jumbo size
G
and they don’t ever realize
D G D G
their killin’ the little man ah, the little man

D A
It wasn’t long ago when I was a child
G
an old black man came with his mule and his plow
D A
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
G
back before we’d all forgotten

D G D G D

G
about the little man the little man long live the little man
D
God Bless the little man
