God Bless The Child

(Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr)

	  		
G7           C        Gdim             C         Gdim 
Them that's got shall get, them that's not shall lose 
       Gm7    C9           Gm7     C9 
So the Bible said, and it still is news. 
F       Fdim       Fm      Fdim 
Mama may  have,   papa may have 
    Em7           Gdim         Dm7     G7           
But God bless the child that's got his own 
G7/13-           C    Am7  Dm7  G7 
That's got his own 
G7        C          Gdim             C        Gdim 
Yes, the strong gets more, while the weak ones fade 
      Gm7      C9         Gm7      C9 
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade 
F       Fdim       Fm      Fdim 
Mama may  have,   papa may have 
    Em7            Gdim         Dm7    G7           
But God bless the child that's got his own 
 G7/13-            C     C5-/7  F7 E7 
That's got his own 

Bridge 

Am7    Am7+    Am7 Am6   Em             Em7+       Em7   Em6 
Money, you got lots o' friends crowdin' round the door 
Am7         Am7+       Am7     Am6 
When you're gone, and spending ends  
 Em        Edim    G#7   G7 
They don't come no more 
G7      C      Gdim           C        Gdim 
Rich relations give crust of bread and such 
         Gm7      C9             Gm7      C9 
You can help yourself, but don't take too much 
F       Fdim       Fm      Fdim 
Mama may  have,   papa may have 
    Em7            Gdim        Dm7     G7             
But God bless the child that's got his own 
G7/13-             C 
That's got his own
