The Soup Song (My Bonnie)

GC G / - D / GC G / CD G / G C D G / G C D G

I'm spending my nights in the flop house
I'm spending my days on the street
I'm looking for work and I find none
I wish I had something to eat
Soup, soup, they gave me a bowl of soup (2x)

I spent fifteen years in the factory
I did everything I was told...
