Intro: F

(F)I met him in a dive down in New Orleans,

I recognized his handsome face,

It was none of my business but I had to know,

What he was doing in this kind of place,

(Bb)Cause he use to have money use to have honeys,

He used to be society's prince,

(F)But he still wore a grin when I sat beside him,

(C)And ask where all that money(F)went,


(Bb)He said (C)some was spent on gambling,

a lot was spent women, (F)a little on some good Cabernet,

(Bb)(C)Three or four devorces, at least as many horses,

that(F) never left the startin' gates,

Di(Am)amond rings and furs, (Dm)swamp land in New Jersey,

That(C) week I spent a year in L.(Bb)A.,I hate to admit, (C)

I threw the rest a(F)way.

(F)He said money don't mean nothing is this game of life,

It's just a way of keeping score

Show me a man who's got everything

I'll show you one who wants even more

(Bb)Well, so smoke em' if you gottem'
