	  		Am E Am E    Am E Am E7 etc     

          Am  
Here is a story about a sinner,   

He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and   
  E/B  
position,   

But the pressures at the office and his socialite engagements,   
                                 Am  
And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition,   

A  
It turned him to the booze,   

And he got mixed up with a floosie   
                              Dm  
And she led him to a life of indecision    
Am  
The floosie made him spend his dole   

She left him lying on Skid Row   
          Am             E7     E7/B Am E7 Am  
A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission    

E7 (an introductory arpeggio)  
It's such a shame
