1. Livin' on free food tickets,
G G
water in the milk from a hole in the roof where the rain came through.
D D E E
What can you do? Ahah.
A A
Tears from your little sister, crying because she doesn't have a dress
G G
without a patch for the party to go.
D D E E
But you know, she'll get by.

Ref.:
A A D D
Cause she's living in the love of the common people,
A A E E
smiles from the heart of a family man.
A A D D
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
A A E E E7 E7 A A
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can. And she can.

2. It's a good thing you don't have bus fare.

it would fall through the hole in your pocket
G G
and you'd lose it in the snow on the ground.
G G E E
You gotta walk into town, to find a job.
A A
Trying to keep your hands warm,

when the hole in your shoe let the snow come through,
G G
and chill you to the bone.
D D E E
Somehow you better go home where it's warm.

Ref. 2:
A A D D
Where you can live in the love of the common people,
A A E E
smiles from the heart of a family man.
A A D D
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to,
A A E E E7 E7 A A
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can. And she can.
