 You know a man was coming out this morning
D                               A
 they want to reposess my home

Well, they took my television
now they're coming for my radio
Well, they took my television
now they're coming for my radio
They don't like the way I'm doing
they say I pay my bills too slow

I paid twenty dollars down
I bought a new Chevrolet Bel air
I paid twenty dollars down
I bought a new Chevrolet Bel air
Was a man he came out and got it and now I
got to walk everywhere
