C F C Young Peggy just died today C F C Young Peggy just died today F C Am And I guess nobody even knows the case G F But the way the story goes E Dm She just ran out of clothes C F No will this world C Just for wore peg down F C Last words, can't talk F C And then she wrote. Some people can't stand no rain Some people can't stand no rain When it's cloudy outside You can't see the sun But on a bright and sunny day The people all go away Except one Oh no don't pity me babe I know I'm alright O yeah, I'm alright. Don't see no tears around me Don't see no tears around me I don't take much stock In the things people say I'm not saying that they're wrong They've just been standing round too long Gone bad, Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright O yeah, I'm alright. Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright ------------------------------------------ These extra verses could be found on the demo recording of "Don't pity me babe": Can't ride my broom no more Can't ride my broom no more 'Cause the landlady's taken To sweeping the floor I guess I'll go back to my place And occupy a little space John Doe, Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright O yeah, I'm alright. The streets are crammed, can't walk Might find somebody and talk I can't find nobody who Say boo, guess who 'Cause that street is paved with aires And everybody is putting on theirs Can't breathe Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright O yeah, I'm alright. He's standing outside my door He's standing outside my door But he won't ring the bell And he's just to scared to knock And he's puzzled And he's young And he's doing what's already been done One more Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright O yeah, I'm alright. Oh no, don't pity me babe I know I'm alright.
