Mr. President – Randy Newman

04/09/2010

It appeared on Forrest Gump, which was from where I know it. I don’t have to recommend you the soundtrack from the film, I guess you all know it.

B           F#
We've taken all you've given
B                B7      E
But it's gettin' hard to make a livin'
B            F#                        B      F#
Mr. President  have pity on the working man

B               F#
We ain’t asking you to love us
B       B7             E
You may place yourself high above us
B            F#                         B   B7
Mr. President  have pity on the working man

E         Em
I know it may sound funny
B                                  B7
But people ev'ry where are runnin' out of money
C#7                           F#   C#7  F#dim7  F#
We just can't make it by ourself

It is cold and the wind is blowing
We need something to keep us gong
Mr. President have pity on the working man

Maybe you're cheap
Maybe you're lyin'
Maybe you have lost your mind
Maybe you're only thinking 'bout yourself

Too late to run. Too late to cry now
The time has come for us to say good-bye now
Mr. President have pity on the working man
Mr. President have pity on the working man
