[C]    [D]    [G]    
[C]I lay my [G]head on the [D]railroad [G]tracks,
[C]waiting for the [D]double [G]E  
The [C]rail-[G]road don't [D]run no [G]more,
[C]poor, poor [D]pitiful [G]me  

[C]Poor, [G]poor, [D]pitiful [G]me,  
[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  
[C]These young [G]girls won't [D]let me [G]be,  
[C]Lord have [G]mercy on [D]me;  
woe is [G]me  

Well, I [C]met a [G]girl in West [D]Holly[G]wood,
and [C]I ain't [D]naming [G]names
But she [C]really [G]worked me [D]over [G]good,
she was [C]just like [D]Jesse [G]James
She [C]really [G]worked me [D]over [G]good,
she was a [C]credit [D]to her [G]gender
She [C]put me [G]through some [D]changes, [G]Lord;
sort of [C]like a [D]Warring [G]Blender

[C]Poor, [G]poor, [D]pitiful [G]me,  
[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  
[C]These young [G]girls won't [D]let me [G]be,  
[C]Lord have [G]mercy on [D]me;  
woe is [G]me  

[C]So  [G]lo  [D]    [G]    [C]    [D]    [G]    

[C]Poor, [G]poor, [D]pitiful [G]me,  
[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  
[C]These young [G]girls won't [D]let me [G]be,  
[C]Lord have [G]mercy on [D]me;  
woe is [G]me  

I [C]met a [G]girl at the [D]Rainbow [G]Bar,
she [C]asked me [D]if I'd [G]beat her
She [C]took me [G]back to the [D]Hyatt [G]House,

I don't want to talk about it

[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  
[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  
[C]poor, poor, [D]pitiful [G]me  



I lay my head on the railroad tracks,
waiting for the double E
The rail-road don't run no more,
poor, poor pitiful me

Poor, poor, pitiful me,
poor, poor, pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be,
Lord have mercy on me;
woe is me

Well, I met a girl in West Hollywood,
and I ain't naming names
But she really worked me over good,
she was just like Jesse James
She really worked me over good,
she was a credit to her gender
She put me through some changes, Lord;
sort of like a Warring Blender

Poor, poor, pitiful me,
poor, poor, pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be,
Lord have mercy on me;
woe is me

Solo

Poor, poor, pitiful me,
poor, poor, pitiful me
These young girls won't let me be,
Lord have mercy on me;
woe is me

I met a girl at the Rainbow Bar,
she asked me if I'd beat her
She took me back to the Hyatt House,

I don't want to talk about it

poor, poor, pitiful me
poor, poor, pitiful me
poor, poor, pitiful me
