G.............................C
Oh my lady, oh she tears my eyes

G.................................C
I got no job and I ain't got no ride

G....................................Am..........................C
What's an old man like me, oh mother, to do

And my lady, oh she broke my back
Go get your things, son, and go get packed
Oh, can't she see that you and I are crew

Oh, mother mother, it's a ferris wheel
Oh, sister brother, it's a ferris wheel
And all I seem to do
Is, baby, go round

Well, heaven help us, it's a ferris wheel
Oh lordy lordy! It's a ferris wheel
And all I wanna do
Is get my feet back on the ground, on the ground, on the ground
Yeah!
La-dee-da

I took a chance and I moved back home
My father's there and he's all alone
Say it? Sweet mother done passed in the fall, in the fall, in the fall

And oh my father he feeds me good
I moved back home cause I knew he would
But my, I'm much too old to be polishing that stone, that stone, that stone

Oh, heaven help us, it's a ferris wheel
Oh lordy lordy! It's a ferris wheel
And all I seem to do is, baby, go round, go round, go round, go ground

Well, mother mother, it's a ferris wheel
Oh, sister brother, it's a ferris wheel
And all we wanna do is get our feet back on the ground,
on the ground, on the ground, on the ground
Yeah!

Got me a job, oh it pays my bread
I swing my bones and I shake my head
I'll take your nickles, oh your pennies, and your dimes, your dimes, your dimes

And the old ladies, oh they think I'm sweet
I shake my bones and I stomp my feet
If I could only pay the rent on time, on time

Well, brother brother, it's a ferris wheel
Oh, father mother! It's a ferris wheel
And all we seem to do is baby go round, go round, go round, go round

Well, heaven help us, it's a ferris wheel
Oh lordy lordy! It's a ferris wheel
And all I wanna do is get my feet back on the ground, on the ground, on the ground
Go ahead, yeah yeah!


*Use the rifts where the chords are. If any of this doesn't make since please comment on it and I will try and fix it.

thanks for sharing this! i noticed that the chords in the song should be G Am C during all parts, the Am is just held longer on the last line.
