Original Words and Melody by Tampa Red

Some New Words and Bridge by Peter Bergel

From the album “Peace Is Where You Make It”

E                                                 E7

Ain’t got no money, can’t buy no grub

A                                  A7                  A

Backbone and navel doin’ the belly rub

E                                   B      Bb A

But after all my hard trav’lin’

E                      B7            E       C7  B7

Things about comin’ my way.

 

My sister was sick, doctor wouldn’t come

Because we could not pay him the proper sum

But after all my hard trav’lin’

Things about comin’ my way.

 

Bridge

                A                                       A7

I got to thinkin’ it sure don’t seem right

          E                                                       E7

That poor folks must choose between health care and light

F#                                                                     F#7

I got to thinkin’ some more and didn’t seem fair

        B7

That all of our people can’t get Medicare

 

When your body is sick and the cupboard is bare

You don’t want insurance, you want real health care

‘Cause after all your hard trav’lin’

Things about coming’ your way.

 

So you got to lobby, got to speak up loud

What you can’t do alone, sure can do with a crowd

And after all your hard trav’lin’

Things about comin’ your way.
