Brother Can You Spare A Dime

(E.Y. Harburg and Jay Gorney)

	  		
Intro: Am E7 A7 D G7 C E7 

Am                          E7               A7 
Once I built a railroad, made it run 
D        G7          C        E7 
Made it race against time 
Dm/F                E7          Am        F7 
Once I build a railroad  now it's done 
Dm6               E7          Am 
Brother, can you spare a dime 
Am                    E7        A7 
Once I built a tower to the sun 
D        G7          C     E7 
Brick and rivet and lime 
Dm/F           E7        Am       F7 
Once I build a tower  now it's done 
Dm6               E7      Am 
Brother, can you spare a dime 

Bridge 
A7 
Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell 
                              Gm6           A7 
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-dum 
 D7 
Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell  
Am                      F7     E7 
I was the kid with the drum 
Am                              E7                  A7 
Say, don't you remember, they called me Al 
D         G7        C    E7 
It was Al all the time 
Dm/F               E7           Am            F7 
Say, don't you remember?  I'm your pal 
Dm6             E7  E7/13-   Am 
Buddy can you spare  a   dime
