Well, the doctor comes 'round here with his face all bright  
                                                  D    
And he says "in a little while you'll be alright" 
         G                                       C                   Am

And what happened to you poor black folks, well it just ain't fair"  
                     G                                            C                     Am   
He took a look around gave a little pep talk, said "I'm with you" then he took a little walk 
       G                      D                       CGCGCGCD
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?

There's bodies floatin' on Canal and the levees gone to Hell  
                                                            D     
Martha, get me my sixteen gauge and some dry shells  
                G                   
Them who's got got out of town 
                   C                  Am    
And them who ain't got left to drown  
           G                        D                        C        D G 
Tell me, how can a poor man stand such times and live?  
                                           D                     G    
I got family scattered from Texas all the way to Baltimore  
                                                  D     C 
And I ain't got no home in this world no more  
               G                                          C                           Am 
Gonna be a judgment that's a fact, a righteous train rollin' down this track  
        G                      D                       CGCGCGCD

About the artist behind How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
