Intro: G D/A C7

G7                           
Me and my wife went all over town,
G7                                      G7/B
And everywhere we went people turned us down,
           C7                    
Lord, in a bourgeois town,
       G
It's a bourgeois town,
          D/F#
I got the bourgeois blues,
                          G
Gonna spread the news all around,

G7
Home of the brave, land of the free,
G7                                        G7/B
I don't wanna be mistreated by no bourgeoisie,
           C7
Lord, in a bourgeois town,
         G
Uhm, the bourgeois town,
          D/F#
I got the bourgeois blues,
                          G     
Gonna spread the news all around,

G7
Well, me and my wife we were standing upstairs,
G7
We heard the white man say,
G7                          G7/B
"I don't want no nxxxers up there"
           C7
Lord, in a bourgeois town,
     G              
Uhm, bourgeois town,

                          G
Gonna spread the news all around,

Solo: 

G7
Well, them white folks in Washington they know how,
G7                                             G7/B
To call a colored man a nxxxer just to see him bow,
             C7                          
Lord, it's a bourgeois town,
         G

Gonna spread the news all around,

G7                                 
I tell all the colored folks to listen to me,
G7                                           G7/B
Don't try to find you no home in Washington, DC,
              C7
'Cause it's a bourgeois town,
         G
Uhm, the bourgeois town,
          D7/F#
I got the bourgeois blues, 
                          G    G7
Gonna spread the news all around.
