Poor Elijah, living on the bayou way.
	     D
Poor Elijah, he had to take over raising fourteen kids
When his daddy got caught stealing chickens from a neighbor one day.
A
Work on Elijah, work on.

Poor Elijah, born the son of a slave.

From working in the sun for the man like a dog all day.

Work on Elijah, work on.

Poor Elijah.
F#m  A
Poor Elijah.
D    A

TRIBUTE TO JOHNSON

A
I'm going to sing you a song, a song about a man
Nobody hardly knows him.
Nobody hardly knows him.
Nobody hardly knows him.

G#-A (slide up from G# to A)    G#-A
Good morning Robert Johnson son.
G#-A		               G#-A
You built your life before your song was sung.
G#-A                G#-A
People agree and now you're number one.
G#-A
So sad to think we had to wait so long.

D
It keeps on getting better every day,
E
And maybe someday soon, people will say,


A
Ain't nobody here but good people.
Ain't nobody here but good people.
Ain't nobody here but good people.

A
Nobody, nobody here.
Nobody, nobody here.
Nobody, nobody here.
Nobody, nobody here.
A                     E                                    A
Just drinking my wine and then loving in slow motion time
