(Gotta Get A) Meal Ticket

D F x4

D                         D7
I can hound you if I need to
D                          D7       F
Sip your brandy from a crystal shoe

C/E     G     F  C/E  D
In the corner, in the corner
      Em                    Bm
While others climb reaching dizzy heights
  G                          Bb         C
The world's in front of me in black and white
           D           F           D           F
I'm on the bottom line, I'm on the bottom line

I'd have a cardiac if I had such luck
Lucky losers, lucky losers landing on skid row
Landing on skid row
While the Diamond Jims, And the Kings road pimps
Breath heavy in their brand new clothes
I'm on the bottom line, I'm on the bottom line

Dm

Gm    Am          Dm
And I gotta get a meal ticket
Bb     C              F
To survive you need a meal ticket
Gm      Am                    Dm
To stay alive you need a meal ticket
Gm   
Feel no pain, no pain
F/A
No regret, no regret
         C 
When the line's been signed
       Bb
You're someone else
Gm                       Am                   Dm
Do yourself a favor, the meal ticket does the rest

Shake a hand if you have to
Trust in us and we will love you anyway, anyway
Don't leave us stranded in the jungle
With fifty percent that's hard to handle
Ain't that so, ain't that so
