G           Bm
Here is the money that I owe you
G           Bm
Yes you can pay the bills
G       Bm
I will give you more
       C              Em
When I get paid again


G            Bm
I hate those people who love to tell you
G            Bm
Money is the root of all that kills
G          Bm
They have never been poor
           C                     Em
They have never had the joy of a welfare christmas
G
I know we will never look back


- repeat Verse  progression -
You say you wake up crying
Yes and you don’t know why
You get up and you go lay down
Inside my baby’s room


Yeah, I guess I’m doing ok
I moved in with the strangest guy
Can you believe he actually thinks
That I am really alive

Chorus:
G      B7           Em
I will buy you a garden
             C
Where your flowers can bloom
G      B7            Em
I will buy you a new car
         C
Perfect shiny and new
G      B7               Em
I will buy you that big house
       C
Way up in the west hills
G      B7             C
I will buy you a new life
C
Yes I will


- repeat Verse progression -
Yes, I know all about that other guy
The handsome man with athletic thighs
I know about all the time before
With that obsessive little rich boy


They might make you think you’re happy
Yeah maybe for a minute or two
They can’t make you laugh
No they can’t make you feel the way that I do

Chorus:
G      B7           Em
I will buy you a garden
             C
Where your flowers can bloom
G      B7            Em
I will buy you a new car
         C
Perfect shiny and new
G      B7               Em
I will buy you that big house
       C
Way up in the west hills
G      B7             C
I will buy you a new life
G      B7             C
I will buy you a new life


I know we can never look back


G
Will you please let me stay the night
G
Will you please let me stay the night
G
No one will ever know

Chorus - 2x -:
G      B7           Em
I will buy you a garden
             C
Where your flowers can bloom
G      B7            Em
I will buy you a new car
         C
Perfect shiny and new
G      B7               Em
I will buy you that big house
       C
Way up in the west hills
G      B7             C
I will buy you a new life


I will buy you a new life
I will buy you a new life

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
