Old Man Trump

Old Man Trump

Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Ryan Harvey

[Key G]

GI suppose that Old Man Trump knows just how much racial hate

CHe stirred up in that bloodpot of Ghuman hearts

DWhen he drawed that color line

DHere at his Beach Haven Gfamily project

GBeach Haven ain’t my home!

CNo, I just can’t Gpay this rent!

GMy money’s down the drain,

DAnd my soul is badly bent!

GBeach Haven is Trump’s Tower

CWhere no black folks Gcome to roam,

GNo, no, Old Man Trump!

DOld Beach Haven G ain’t my home!

 

GI’m calling out my welcome to you and your man both

CWelcoming you here to GBeach Haven

DTo love in any way you please and to have some kind of a decent place

DTo have your kids raised Gup in.

 

GBeach Haven ain’t my home!

CNo, I just can’t Gpay this rent!

GMy money’s down the drain,

DAnd my soul is badly bent!

GBeach Haven is Trump’s Tower

CWhere no black folks Gcome to roam,

GNo, no, Old Man Trump!

DOld Beach Haven G ain’t my home!
