Brother Can You Spare A Dime

Song Author E.Y. Harburg og Jay Gorney Performer: Bing Crosby Submitted by: jonagust
[Am]Once I built a railroad, m[E7]ade it [A7]run,   
[D]Made it r[G7]ace against [C]time; [E7]    
[Dm/F]Once I build a [E7]railroad -- [Am]now it's d[F7]one.   
[Dm6]Brother, can you s[E7]pare a d[Am]ime?   

[Am]Once I built a tower t[E7]o the [A7]sun,   
[D]Brick and[G7] rivet and l[C]ime; [E7]    
[Dm/F]Once I build a [E7]tower -- n[Am]ow it's d[F7]one.   
[Dm6]Brother, can you s[E7]pare a d[Am]ime?   

[A7]Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell,
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-[Gm6]dum; [A7]    
H[D7]alf a million boots went sloggin' through Hell --
[Am]I was the kid with the d[F7]rum. [E7]    

[Am]Say, don't you remember, they ca[E7]lled me [A7]Al?   
[D]It was Al [G7]all the ti[C]me. [E7]    
[Dm/F]Say, don't you rem[E7]ember? [Am]I'm your [F7]pal.   
[Dm6]Buddy can you sp[E7]are    [Eaug] a di[Am]me?   

Once I built a railroad, made it run,
Made it race against time;
Once I build a railroad -- now it's done.
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once I built a tower to the sun,
Brick and rivet and lime;
Once I build a tower -- now it's done.
Brother, can you spare a dime?

Once, in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell,
Full of that Yankee Doodle de-dum;
Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell --
I was the kid with the drum.

Say, don't you remember, they called me Al?
It was Al all the time.
Say, don't you remember? I'm your pal.
Buddy can you spare a dime?
