CHESTER AND ME
Words & Music by Pat Flanakin
┬ęPat Flanakin


VERSE A rainy night down in New Orleans
Leaves a poor man to the street
Be a long cold night till mornin'
Be a long, long time 'fore I up and leave

VERSE Got a friend here name of Chester
He got a son he ain't never seen
Cause his wife she up and left him
Well all and all he's been good company

CHORUS The life of a poor man it's got meaning
It's the story of the struggle for the need to be
The life of a poor, poor man is one we've had to lead
It's the only kind of life for Chester and me

VERSE Chester, ain't you feelin' hungry
Come on, get up boy - move your feet
I know a place down by the Quarters
Where the food is hot and the menu's cheap

BREAK

CHORUS The life of a poor man it's never easy
What 'ya got is what's left out on the streets
The life of a poor, poor man is all I'll ever be
It's the only kind of life for Chester and me

VERSE Chester I think I'm going crazy
There's got to be a better place for me
Yeah if the rain stops, we'll go walkin'
And watch the lovely ladies stroll down Bourbon Street

VERSE A rainy night down in New Orleans
Leaves a poor man to the street
Be a long, cold night till mornin'
Be a long, long time 'fore I up and leave

TAG Just another cold night for Chester and me
