Best People In the World

Hi Folks. I thought I'd blog the lyrics and uke chords of my last show's opening number for those musically inclined. Enjoy!

The Best People in the World

G
I’ve toured the globe
From La Havre to La Trobe
D
That’s just a thing that I do
But I get tired out
With the People who count
G
And I love coming back here to you

I spend lots of time
With those social climbers
D
People of fortune and fame
But don’t be put out
I don’t give them more clout
.....................G
Just ‘cause I can remember their names

I been there and done this and
Gained all sorts of wisdom
C.......................................................A7
And I thought I’d share this one pearl
D........................................................D7
I’d rather be here with all of you folks
D.............................D7..................G
Than all the best people ‘n the world

I have such a blast
With folks who have class
D
Above all the rancor and squalor
But I get so tired
Of folks I admire
G
So I thought I’d come give you a holler

You’re no more badder
Than people who matter
D
That’s right, I said what I meant
In my opinion
You’re just as fun
G
As People with intelligence

When I feel blue
I think of you
C...............................................A7
In any place I’ve ever been hurled
D......................................D7
I’d rather be here with all of you folks
..........D..................D7..................G
Than all the best people 'n the world


(Bridge)
D
All those newsmakers
The movers and shakers
G
Settin’ the world all aflame
D
When the world changes
It’s all done by strangers
G
I know that y’all aren’t to blame
C
I’ll tell you squarely
They kinda scare me
G
They’ll lead us to certain doom
C
Those people in charge
Will screw things up large
D....................................................D7
But it won’t be someone in this room

G
Life’s kinda funny
Power and money
D
It fun to be with people who got ‘em
But when that's all through
I come to club Rendezvous
G
And hang out with you all Right here at rock bottom

When push comes to shove
It’s you losers I love
C..............................................A7
Even with your freak flags unfurled
D.......................................D7
I’d rather be here with all of you folks
D......................................D7
I’d rather be here with all of my friends
D......................................D7
I'd rather be here with all of you people
Tacit.......................................................G
Than all the best people in the world
G Gsus G
