Intro:  / F - - - / C E7 A7 - / D7 - G7 - / C - - G7 /

                                                                       Oh, we

C                             F   C

ain't got a barrel of money,

C                                    F    C

Maybe we're ragged and funny,

                F                 C       E7    A7    D7   G7   C    

But we'll travel along, singin'  a    song, side  by  side.

 

C                                           F  C

Don't know what's comin' tomorrow;

C                                 F   C

Maybe it's trouble and sorrow,

                F                      C       E7    A7    D7   G7   C    

But we'll travel our road sharin' our   load   side   by  side.

 

Bridge:

E7                                           A7

Through all kinds of weather, what if the sky should fall?

    D7                                  G7            

As long as we're together, it really doesn't matter at all.

 

                     C                                      F   C

When they've all had their troubles and parted,

 C                                     F   C

We'll be the same as we started,

          F                   C       E7    A7    D7   G7   C    

Just trav'lin' along, singin'  a    song, side  by  side.

 

Repeat Bridge

 

                     C                                      F   C

When they've all had their troubles and parted,

 C                                     F   C

We'll be the same as we started,

          F                   C       E7    A7    D7   G7   C   A7 

Just trav'lin' along, singin'  a     song, side  by  side

D7  G7  C (hold)

side by side.
