A Well Respected Man.
The Kinks.
Album: Kinkdom.

In the Sixties The Kinks did
some poor Blues covers, writing
songs like this is where they 
found their niche.

Intro: G

         C       Em     Am
Cause he gets up in the morning,
       C       Em      Am
And he goes to work at nine,
       C          Em           Am
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
         C          Em    Am
Gets the same train every time,
          C        Em
Cause his world is built,
      Am      C      Em    Am
Round punctuality, it never fails.

         C      Am             C      Am
And he's oh, so good, and he's oh, so fine,
         C      Am              C            Am
And he's oh, so healthy, in his body and his mind,
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
Fm7                   D     G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

        C              Am 
And his mother goes to meetings,
          C                Am
While his father pulls the maid,
        C         Em       Am       
And she stirs the tea with councilors,
      C                  Am
While discussing foreign trade,
C              Em                Am
And she passes looks, as well as bills,
C                    Am
At every suave young man.

         C      Am             C      Am
And he's oh, so good, and he's oh, so fine,
         C      Am              C            Am
And he's oh, so healthy, in his body and his mind,
       Fm             Em
He's a well respected man about town,
Fm7                   D     G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

       C         Em       Am
And he likes his own backyard,
       C         Em       Am
And he likes his fags the best,
           C      Em       Am
Cause he's better than the rest,
        C         Em         Am
And his own sweat smells the best,
       C        Em       Am
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,
     C            Am
When Pater passes on.

         C      Am             C      Am
And he's oh, so good, and he's oh, so fine,
         C      Am              C            Am
And he's oh, so healthy, in his body and his mind,
       Fm             Em
He's a well respected man about town,
Fm7                   D     G
Doing the best things so conservatively.

       C        Em          Am
And he plays at stocks and shares,
               Em      Am
And he goes to the Regatta,
       C          Em        Am
And he adores the girl next door,
           C        Em     Am
Cause he's dying to get at her,
        C      Em        Am
But his mother knows the best about,
C        Em     Am
The matrimonial stakes.

         C      Am             C      Am
And he's oh, so good, and he's oh, so fine,
         C      Am              C            Am
And he's oh, so healthy, in his body and his mind,
       Fm             Em
He's a well respected man about town,
Fm7                   D     G
Doing the best things so conservatively.
