BAD TIME TO BE POOR
by Tim Vesely
Capo 1 NOTE: TRANSCRIPTION IS DONE AS IF CAPO WAS FRET ZERO. WHEN IT SAYS FRET #2, THE ACTUAL FRET # IS 3
A Asus4 A Em A Em A Em A Em A
A Em A
It is a bad time to be poor,
Em A
'Cause we don't give a shit no more.
Em A
If you want to go for help, don't look next door.
Em A Asus4 A Em A
The line's been drawn and staked outside.
Em A
I see to trying to lay the blame
Em A
On the folks in charge who hide in shame
Em A
For growing up with an open purse,
Em A Ab5
And learning not about being alive.
G Em Dm `` A Ab5
Haven't I done enough to burn out?
G Em Dm A Asus4 A
Haven't I been there to help out?
Em A Asus4 A Em A Asus4 A Em A Asus4 A Em A
Em A
It is a bad time to be young.
Em A
What's left to us can't be undone
Em A
Without it riding on our backs
Em A
When young and poor go hand in hand.
Em A
It is a bad time to be poor
Em A
It's a bad time to be poor.
(chorus)
BRIDGE:
A Ab5 Dm A Ab5 Dm..... A Asus4 A Em...
Em A
It is a bad time to be poor
Em A
It is a bad time to be poor
Em Dm A Asus4
A.....
And feeling winter through a crack in the door.
