                              Little Man
                             Alan Jackson

Guitar: Riff                               
Intro: C/F/C/F

  C                          G
I remember walk'in round the court square sidewalk
Lookin' in windows at things I couldn't want
C                              G
There's johnson's hardware and morgans  jewelry
And the ol' Lee king's apothecary
              C           F
They ware the little man
The little man

Verse:II  'Same chords as the first'

I go back now and the stores are all empty
Except for an old coke sign from 1950
Boarded up like they never existed
Or renovated and called historic districts
There goes the little man
There goes the little man

        Am                    F
Now the court square's just a set of streets
         C                   G
That the people go round but they seldom think
         Am              F
Bout the little man that built this town
C                    G
Before the big money shut em down
               C           F
And killed the little man
       C           F
Oh the little man

Verse: III
He pumped your gas and he cleaned your glass
And one cold rainy night he fixed your flat
The new stores came where you do it yourself
You buy a lotto ticket and food off the shelf
Forget about the little man
Forget about that little man

He hung on there for a few more years
But he couldn't sell slurpees
And he wouldn't sell beer
Now the bank rents the station
To a down the road
And sell velvet Elvis and
Second-hand clothes
There goes little man
There goes another little man

Chorus: Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C/F/C

Violin solo: / Guitar Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C

Verse: V =
Now the are lined up in a concrete strip
You can buy the world with just one trip
And save a penny cause it's jumbo size
They don't even realize
They'er killin' the little man
Oh the little man

Chorus: Am/F/C/G/Am/F/C/G/C/F/C/F

Verse: VI 'Slow strum'
C                   G
It wasn't long when I was a child
An old black man came with his plow
C                            G
He broke the ground where we grew our garden
F                          NC
Back before we'd all forgot
          C           F
about the little man
    C           F
The little man
              C           F
Long live the little man   
NC                          slow strum: C
God bless the little man
