Keep their spirits up Frank, all for some so some for all,
      Am                        F               G

Till theyíre fast asleep.

Now Joe he lost his woman to some big-shot business man.
He said I trusted love not money and now look where I am.
Youíve had enough Joe, you gotta go now.
Youíve too much Joe, I send you home now.
