E E D A

[Verse]
A                     E
Old Joe Riley owned a fishin’ shack
         F#m                     D
With the ocean out front and the bay out back
   A                       E
He had a little boat and a fisherman’s tan
        F#m                       D
When he wasn’t out fishin’ he was sittin’ in the sand

[Chorus]
         E                      A
Then the big boys came and they offered him millions
   D                       A       E
To put up some condos or a swank hotel
E                       F#m
Old Joe Riley told them no thanks anyway
D                           A          E
I could use the money but I just can’t sell
  A                       D
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell
  E                       A
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell come on

[Instrumental Break]
A A A D
E E D A

[Verse]
        A                           E
He said I’ve seen the cities eatin’ up small towns
          F#m                             D
Where you can’t smell the breeze and it’s cement ground
    A                           E
You pay to park your car but it ain’t safe to walk
       F#m                         D
Nobody looks you in the eye, don’t speak, don’t talk

[Chorus]
            E                      A
So when the big boys came and they offered him millions
   D                       A       E
To put up some condos or a swank hotel
E                       F#m
Old Joe Riley told them no thanks anyway
D                           A          E
I could use the money but I just can’t sell
  A                       D
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell
  E                       A
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell here we go

[Solo]

[Bridge]
         A                       G#m
Yeah the bank lock box there’s a deed to some land
         F#m                 D
With his widow’s gold ring a few grains of sand
    A                             E
Joe Riley’s granddaughter’s gonna face a big choice
  F#m                    D
I hope she remembers her granddaddy’s voice

[Chorus]
         E                      A
When the big boys came and they offered him millions
   D                       A       E
To put up some condos or a swank hotel
E                       F#m
Old Joe Riley told them no thanks anyway
D                           A          E
I could use the money but I just can’t sell
  A                       D
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell
  E                       A
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell
  A                       D
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell
  E                       A
A low rent heaven beats a high dollar hell come on

[Outro]
