Intro: A/G G6 D F#dim7/E A G6 D E7 A
                  G             D
Ever seen a blind man cross the road,
E7                    A    G6 D A/E
Try'na make the other side,
A           G                  D
Ever seen a young girl growing old,
E7                    A    G6 D E6 B F#m
Try'na make herself a bride.

                   E/G#    E7/G# A7
What becomes of you my love,
                       B
When they have finally stripped you of,
    D
The handbags and the glad-rags,
          D/E                                
That your Granddad had to sweat, 
             A  G6 D    A      G D F#dim7/E
So you could buy, baby, bye bye.

A            G               D
Once I was a young man and I thought,
A/E                      G6 D  A
All I had to do was smile, baby,
A                        G
You all still look young girls,
        D       A/E                       G6 D E6 Fmaj7
And you bought, everything that's in style.

      F#m                       E
Cause once you think you're in, you're out,
A                            B7
Cause you don't mean a thing without,
    D
The handbags and the glad-rags,
          E7              D/E                 A  G6 D F#dim7/E
That your Granddad had to sweat, so you could buy.
     A   G D F G A
Bye, bye.

A                 G/A               D/A
Oh sing a song of sixpence for your sake,
A                            G/A D/A F/A G/A
And take a bottle full of rye,
A               G/A             D/A
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake,
    A                    A7 D/A A/E Fm6 
And bake 'em all in a pie.

F#m                     E
They told me you missed school today,
A                     B7
So I suggest you just throw away,
    D
The handbags and the glad-rags,
          D/E                                 A  G6 D  A G D E F6
That your Granddad had to sweat, so you could buy, baby

F#m                     E
They told me you missed school today,
A                     B7
So I suggest you just throw away,
    D
The handbags and the glad-rags,
          D/E                                 A  G6 D  A/E
That your Granddad had to sweat, so you could buy, baby,
    A  G D 
Bye bye,
A          G6 D
Oh bye bye,
