More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

       G
Oh You did not have a home
           C                  G
There were places You visited frequently
C                       G
Took off Your shoes and scratched Your feet
          G             D/F#          Em
Cause You knew that the whole world belonged to the meek
        Am             Em
But You did not have a home
       C       D      G
No You did not have a home

        G
And You did not take a wife
           C                G
There were pretty maids all in a row
    C                     G
Who lined up to touch the hem of Your robe
        G      D/F#     Em
But You had no place to take them
       Am             Em
So You did not take a wife
       C       D      G
No You did not take a wife

C  G                C  G
   Birds have nests,   foxes have dens
C                      Em
   But the hope of the whole world rests
          Am                      Em
   On the shoulders of a homeless man
               C              G/B      Am
   You had the shoulders of a homeless man
       C       D      G
   You did not have a home

        G
And you had no stones to throw
    C               G
You came without an ax to grind
    C               G
You did not toe the party line
   G      D/F#       Em
No wonder sight came to the blind
    Am               Em
You had no stones to throw
       C      D         G
No you had no stones to throw

       G
So you rode and ass's foal
     C                          G
They spread out their coats and cut down palms
    C                      G
For you and your donkey to walk upon
        G           D/F#         Em
But the world won't find what it thinks it wants
       Am               Em
On the back of an ass's foal
     Am                   Em
So I guess you had to get sold
          C           G/B           Am     G/B
Cause the world can't stand what it cannot own
       C                        D4  D   D2   D
And it can't own you 'cause You did not have a home
