	Now the tears in the gutter are floodin' the sea
	Why was I born
	No-no-no-no  whoa-oh no-no-no-no no no no, no

Verse 3:

	Oh baby, it looks good and dirty, them shiny lights glow

	But who cares anyway

	Baby, it feels like I'm dyin'   now


	I swear there's something better than
	Abmaj7 (vibes)
	Getting off on sweet cocaine
	[C]					[single note]
	It feels so good
	Absus2 [468xxx]         Dbsus4 [xxx674]
	       It feels so good
	                               [G] [F]
	Gettin' off the poverty train
