Barton Carroll - Every Little Bit Hurts
Misc Unsigned Bands
Barton Carroll finger-picks the hell out of this song. It's far above my skill set to try to tell you how to accomplish that. Here is the basic chord structure though. I play it in a-shaped barrs, and it comes out pretty good. A D A E D A that ol' drinkin' man livin' out on Tatum's land well I've known him in this town all my life A D A E D A he sips away his days, and he's got a kindly way and if you care to set a spell, he will abide E D A E D Bm I said, "You never look much troubled and the years are coming on. There must be some secret that you own." A D A E D A he said, "Son, I never fight with old Jose. You know I always hold out for Patron. E D A E D Bm So with a moment of your time won't you spare an old man a dime? A D A We'll go down (to) the liquor store, and we'll go dancing through the door. E D A 'Cause you know every little bit hurts!" A D A that ex-girl of mine had me lovesick all the time E D A oh, boys. she was a beauty in the day A D A and stolen from my arms by a man with vacant charm E D A and it didn't take him long to fly away E D A two children at home, left to mind them on her own E D Bm now she's downtown dancing on a pole A D A she said, "It's good to see you, hon. Oh, and didn't we have some fun E D A back before we knew the ways of the world? E D A E D Bm So you got a twenty dollar bill for me? I'm gonna make you the VIP. A D A E D A And for old time's sake let's go make the earth quake! 'Cause you know every little bit hurts!" A D A I went to see the preacher, and I told him where I'd been E D A I said, "Man, there is a sadness wide and deep." A D A E D A he said, "Son, you best come in and repent for all your sins and the wicked company you keep. E D A E Bm That strong drink will make you turn, and Babylon will burn, and Jezebel will tempt you from the truth." A D A E D A he said, "Leave it all behind! You gotta live for the next life. Big Daddy's got his eye on you." E D A and I said, "Man, for what it's worth I'll take my chances on this earth. E D Bm That sounds more like a trap door than the word." A D A and on my way to his gate I dropped a nickel in his plate. E D A I said, "You know every little bit hurts!"
